Horse ruff test from Tom Caulfield on Vimeo.

The other day the animation paper i ordered got delivered, needless to say having recieved it i was bursting to animate. So after a few stops and starts i had an evening to really get stuck in and immerse myself into animating anything i felt like.
After a flurry of flipping, doodling, erasing and the odd piece of tape for re-pegging this is the result. Its ruff as guts, very unrefined and needs heaps of finessing but man did i enjoy it ;)

My apologies for the qualty of the video, i've been having trouble with the camera i have so had to use an old web cam. Hopefuly you can still see whats going on and with a bit of luck i'll be able to get a better quality version posted soon maybe with the corrections done aswell. Anyway heres two images form te test on what it's ment to look like. ;)

You love animating too much Tom, you really deserve to do it full time.
