Springbok

What's that in the distance ?! A gazelle ? Antelope ? A south-african springbok ? ....or a four-legged alien ?... Most likely the fruit of a twisted imagination...

This is the traditional quadruped run cycle assignment at Gobelins. The challenge I set for myself was to keep the quality of movement while using a naive, child-like style. I filled a sketchbook with fun creature designs and then animated a bunch of them on Flash.
