Richard Williams Doggy Stuff WIth My Own Theory
SO i decided to scan in some images of what was in the section for the four legged animal walks and principles. As you can see in this description animals walk like us but with one set of legs slightly ahead of the other or slightly out of phase. Again like i said before in my basset hound section you have to focus on the type of dog like size and weight plus the speed that it is going at and whatever little things that need to be added.
As you can see here it has four sections the head the legs (that counts as 2) and the tail but we are just focusing on the two leg sections just now :D. So the back part of the legs is in the PAS POS and the pelvis is going up whilst the front legs are in the CONTACT POS and the chest is going down. Again flip it the other way on the next drawing and you have the same but opposite. This looks like the main frames I.E the extremes.
Here is another full description of a dog walking but the extremes are different from the page above us though so i think it might be different fro other four legged animals because it os obvious that the page above is a feline animal.
SO the two extremes here have the animal on frame 1 with the pelvis down and the legs seem to be in the DOWN POS and the front legs are in the PAS POS and in frame 11 same but flipped with legs.
How do we start and break it down however though which leg do we start with, the front or the back what position the CONTACT of the DOWN or even the PAS. In my theory here the keyframes are focused on the front legs and the numbers are......( 5, 7, 11, 13, 15)
Here is a breakdown of the whole thing with Richard Wiliams oppinion.
We can even break the joints on the four legged walk it we have to here is an example of it in the paws of the animal.
Because It is a basset hound we are studying we need to focus on the weight of the animal. So I placed in a section about how to get weight right.
I also threw in this section too because it shows about the action of a whip, this is for the dogs tail but when we study basset hounds movements we notice that the tail is always up and it moves a bit violently especially when they are going downstairs so this will need to be taken into consideration.
