Pony run animation test by Ocarinaplaya Pony run animation test by Ocarinaplaya
Someone pointed out in the test animation that the run cycle for the doctor in that scene looked more like a horse than a pony. So I redid it about 3 times to try and get it right. Now I'm looking for some feedback.

it is not looking bad, but the neck seems a bit long and his hoof should be solid and stiff, not as...well, bendy and his back leg seems a bit smaller. try making the legs seems like one motion. it may just be me. however, you are the artist...the final critique should be you to decide. also, is there another piece where he has his head? it may be more helpful to give a better critique.

and please note that this is my first and only critique i have ever done. and i said earlier...you are the artist. what happens is up to you and only you.
What do you think?

what is going on with his back legs? XD When i animate something, or even just drawing someone in motion, i try to think of how their weight would be balanced, how they would be kicking/pushing off of the ground, you know just to give it some gravity. My problem with this is it kind of looks as if he's just floating and flailing in place, and the back legs dont seem to pick up quite as much as they should.. im not sure, but something just seems plain off with it

I hope i helped a little? :D good animation though, either way, im pretty new at this stuff myself!

Seems fluid enough to me, though I don't know the difference between a horse stride and a pony's. Don't they all stride the same in the show? But I digress, this is well animated and suits the Doctor.
I like how the mark moves with the body.

I think his strides are a little too long (I don't want to sound like a hater)

Seems a bit like the legs on the far side are going too fast, but in all it looks good.

Well, you got to remember, Doc might not be 100% accustomed to being a pony yet. So maybe he doesn't know any better :P

Also, Doctor indirectly started the rumor which turned into the Legend of the Headless Horse.

Looks good, but the neck needs to be a bit more lowered.

Looks pretty good to me, if you wanted to edit it at all I would suggest maybe putting some movement in the tail instead of it just rotating. I know it would take a bit longer to add that into it, but it would make the animation even nicer to watch.

This is very well done! It looks more like a pony than a horse, definitely

What's the difference between a horse's gallop and a pony's? o.O

The ponys in the show never gallop, they just do a fast canter.
