Ostrich Herd at Night

Since I'm not much of an animator, I made this ostrich walk-cycle by using some Eadweard Muybridge photos I found on the net as a guide.

The scaling and motion are based on the same Z-axis shortcut used in the last movie.

Although there are only a few Muybridge photos available on the net, you'll find lots more in these Dover reprints, available from Amazon.
