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 , 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. 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 Other Videos:

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:
