lovely basset hound piccys
So i got my basset hound to walk and model for me and i managed to get a much better understanding of her skin and weight when she moves. I came up with some sketches to show off what i have been talking about in the previous posts. I even drew up what the frames of the foot are doing in 2s on the bottom of the page.
So this is the front of the legs and as you can see i drew the keyframes and if you look when the foot goes down all the weight goes down with it. As it moves from the down into the pass position the skin folds onto the back of her leg then it rests as it progresses upwards.
The backlegs are very interesting because if you look at the keyframes here when the contact position come into frame the skin and the weight are at its highest point then it starts the flop down on the down position, as the leg progresses forwards the skin rests before the pass position and then starts to move around the leg and back upwards to hit the contact again.
