Animation Practice: Sayaka Running1 Sketch by Nsio Animation Practice: Sayaka Running1 Sketch by Nsio
Basic running sequence practice

As I noticed that 5 frames weren't quite enough, I tried 8 frames instead. However, I drew only 4 and then mirrored them to save time and effort. Now that I used the additional frames for slowing down the movement towards extreme positions, I could make the change of the movement direction smoother.

Sayaka was kind enough to run on treadmill for me.

Frames drawn on Paint Tool Sai
Animated in Adobe Photoshop CS4

Very nice! Mind sharing what reference did you use? Or did you literally have someone run on a treadmill? xD

It's not four frames. You can see it count up to 8 in the actual animation. They're only showing 4

Nicely done. However, the legs tend to move out and then back in when walking and running.
But still a very beautiful animation.

Her hips should be moving around in circles by her sides. Even when walking, female hips move in circles.

I think you should move her hips side by side more because It doesn't look like she is shifting her weight enough to support her body.
I think you could have delayed her hair a bit more and it's flow could be better. The hair in key frame number 3 should have a more exaggerated S shape I think and at 4 it looks like it's actually going backwards which is absurd, it should be going to the other side.
And one more thing, who flips his arms when running like that? Have you tried running with your arms like this?
Overall it looks good though. You got it.

it is stiff in thein the hips and legs,there's no gap between the legs or anything,the hair is great th wrists could be a little more loose for natural feel but this is good as is and with a bra they would resist more..

Just would like to point out that there is a gap between thighs... hence the existence of word "thigh gap"...

Good, but as a woman i can confirm that even without a bra, that's not what boobs do when we run...or our arms for that matter...good legs and waist movement though, and I'm loving the hair.
