ONE DAY EVENTUALLY I'LL REDO THIS! 
:O School, Life and Work = No free time! 

UPDATE May 20, 2013 Its almost the one year marker since I made this animation. Recently, I decided that I want to redo Cenedra and try to make her more anatomically correct and the movement in this animation accurate as possible. I've been receiving advice from :iconscotthartman:, an awesome dinosaur illustrator and animator. With his help, I hope to make a better version to Cenedra, as realistic as I possibly can do. I spent about 2 months on this one, so I'm going to spend as much time and effort on the new version.

NOTE: If you're on a slow internet connection like me, please let this load fully. :D Also, I know of the problems that are in this animation and many of them have been fixed for future animations of this skeleton.

This is the first to three walk cycles I'm making for my dragon character, Cenedra

_______________________________________________

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)
Cheetahs (shoulders)
Horses (ribs, spine)
Humans (Arms).
Camels (Neck)

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:
Flash Professionals Cs6
Photoshop Cs6

The spine between the hips and shoulder looks very fragile, very prone to breaking your back with a added pressure from the tail. The base of the neck also looks very prone to being snapped. And the feet are too big, so you can't run as fast.

I've already had this professionally evaluated by a skeleton illustrator and animator, so I thank you for the critique but I do not wish to receive anymore.

No, its not that, its just when I made this animation in 2012, alot of people kept critiquing it even though I didn't ask for any. I got every defensive over it when it was going on. In May of this year, I contacted one of the anatomy artist's for the new movie Walking With Dinosaurs, and I had him critique it professionally to see if what people were saying was true or not. All he said was something  about the hind legs  needing to be thinner for the feet and the toe push off needed to be changed. I'm sorry if I came off mean or anything, my bad.

Actually, though I am accepting commissions at the moment, I think I want to decline on taking any animations commissions for now. I have a lot going on with college that I need to take care of since I'm graduating in December.

No, I'm good, I don't need any help. My view on dragons is that there is not an actual dragon in reality for anyone to say they have "facts" on them, so I and you can determine our own viewpoints about what dragons should and shouldn't be about. This skeleton is my interpretation and I'm not going to change it. I studied extensively dinosaurs that have the characteristics I wanted my dragon to have and nothing else.

Look. When I'm working on a drawing, I do my own research. When I draw dragons, I'm drawing my version of the traditional western dragon from mythology. I reference dinosaurs and mammals with the bone structure function that I need the character to have. However, dragons (the ones we draw) are not real. Though, there are some animals that have been given that name like komodo dragons and the draco lizard, I am not drawing them, nor do I reference them when drawing. If I was drawing them I would say so.

By the way. I looked at your gallery just to see if you were informative on dragons, and I saw that people say your work in stolen. I searched myself and I found the original artist website. You're a thief and I hope you get banned because galleries like yours are are a disgrace to deviantart's goals and rules.

If you reply to this, I'm marking it as spam.

I think the neck may need a bit more bounce or movement in it (near the ribcage), but otherwise I don't see any other flaws. Good job. :heart:

if you watch the two other versions to the, muscle and skin, the movement in that area makes more sense. I studied animations of 3d dinosaur animations and in the ones I studied, most were stationary in the base of the neck. But, thank you though.

No no worries. That is one of the technical areas that does need work on eventually. The software I used expired so I can't really fix it until school starts again. You didn't bother me, I'm sorry if I came off that way. :hug:
