Here's a realistic set of quadruped cycles, animated using a lion as reference for the walk and a cheetah for the run, in an attempt to create some believable motion with an unbelievable creature. I tried to sort of re-invent the wheel with this one... I think it's a little too easy to just grab cycle charts off the web that tell you how to time out all your movements. So with this, I decided to use reference footage and figure out my own timing and weight.
Thanks to Chad Vernon for creating the awesome Nico rig.
