I know of all the problems in this animation, so be gentle with your critiques. Also, there is no "set in stone" dragon anatomy so my interpretation isn't wrong
This is the second to six walk cycles I'm making for my dragon character, Cenedra Other Videos:

Version 1 Musculature link

These videos are all part of a major 2D animation walk and run cycle project I've set for myself for the summer. I plan to continue working with Cenedra in the fall and develop 3D animations of her.
I referenced a lot of dinosaurs and mammals for her anatomy. Some of the major animals/dinosaurs used were
Tyrannosaurus Rex (hind leg's feet)
Camptosaurus(most of the body, spine)
Horses (ribs, spine)
Camptosaurus was the most dragon-like to me, and I'll probably continue to reference this dinosaur in the future.
I referenced the movement of horses, dogs, cheetahs, 3D dinosaurs, and camels; so her movement is a mix of all those animals. Programs Used:
