T-Rex walking animation :)
I love the contracting of the legs - you can really feel the meat of the dinosaur.
It will work this time, I promise!
"Jurassic Park" is certainly one of the most spoken terms when talking about dinosaurs with none-dino enthusiasts. . ;)
I love JP, it really has helped to boost the popularity of dinosaurs. This is great, because it means more people visiting museums and exhibits which is pretty much essential for palaeontologists to raise research funds. One of the things JP is to blame for though is that 90% of the people still mistake velociraptors for deinonychi (deinonychus).
Thanks Finlal, hopefully I can make the necessary improvements next time.
@Mandrill, better to keep you off of mosquitos then.
Nothing good will happen.
(btw, how many Jurassic Jokes you hear in a day?)
@Wolfenoctic, awesome piece.
Though, still part seem a bit lifeless in contrast of moving ones.
those front legs looks tiny compared to the rest of the crocodile.
@Mandrill: Excellent edit, thanks a lot mate that made it a lot clearer to me.
No worries. Haha, yeah, feathers for sure
I'm glad you asked for critique! Here is a quick mouse-paintover to adress some of the anatomical issues.
I spared the feathers though ;)
Dinosaurs have been my passion (and soon my job) for almost 20 years now. If you would like to know more, let me know!
Can't wait see the other piece!
@Ptoing: Indeed, thanks for clarifying.
As far as the center of gravity goes I think itsfeet should set down to the ground a bit further back, not much. More weight could be added by having a bit more vertical movement when it sets a foot down and shifts its weight. Maybe a slight rotation on the axis along it's length, but that would be quite a bit of work.
Holy muscle contractions.. Amazing job on this one!
Thank you Ptoing, how would you go about increasing the weight of the animation? And the centre of gravity, more vertical or more horisontal?
@Mandrill: Haha thanks, I asume you mean that they had feathers? What else did I miss, I would greatly appreciate critique because I would like to do a future mockup with another t-rex.
Well done animation. Especially legs muscle contraction. Look like a lot of research.
Really nicely pixeled, but I think the animation lacks a bit of weight and the center of gravity seems somewhat off too.
Despite that you ignored almost all scientific facts, you created one of my most favourite pieces of pixel art ever! This is just too good, especially the muscle contraction.
Hats off to you

Animation looks very fluid!
Would make more sense for the body to sway back and forth as it walked, but it's clear that you've already spent a lot of time on this beautiful animation! Wonderful work.
I love the flexing muscles on the legs! That is a great detail.
