I remember a while ago I saw a cute pic of some small dog animations, by ronnieraccoon. I thought the small easy pallette would be fun to animate, so I gave it a shot. It was pretty fun.

I used to have a pit bull when I was younger, and he kinda' looked like this. The Dog's name was Champ. So I guess this is kind of a mini-tribute, in a kind of way.

Also, I know the spots change sides when he turns. I did all the animations of different activity separately from one another, so when putting them together, I didn't feel switching spots when he turns was worth the time. It's meant to be like a little game sprite, so I felt this little "glitch" wasn't as worrisome.

woof....

**edited two frames that transition from the idle to the sniffing animation to make it less snappy, per previous critique**

Watching this is as good as owning an actual dog. It performs the range of dog activities (sans maybe scratching behind the ear with a leg, peeing on a fire hydrant, and snoozing) with grace and flair. As a cartoon, the dog's construction feels a bit flat and abstract, a style that's been popular for a while and is perhaps overdone. The conservation of form is excellent , especially considering all the dog's subtle movements. It gets a bit dicey when he lowers his head to sniff along the ground (the head basically snaps to a different flat arrangement). Overall, it's very entertaining and full of personality. I'm excited every time I see you've made a new animation!

I zoomed to 4X and left it running at work on my 2nd monitor and everyone that walked by had to stop, admire and rave about it.

It's so cute! So smoothly animated too! The spot changing is a bit irksome but nothing to impacting.
