Animating a Dragon part 01

Today I started working on Arc the Dragon rig doing a jump in Maya. It’s quite a fun exercise to animate creatures especially fantastical ones. Since they do not exist so will have to draw inspiration from some real life animals.

Here are some clips of my progress currently just blocking things in for this short animation piece.

Currently having some trouble applying the body movement of a cat onto a larger dragon. Mostly it’s timing issues as a cat is smaller and more nimble than a large big hulking Dragon.

The reference I will be using for the animation is a cat and an eagle.
