HORSE walking to galloping

In this exercise I tried to animate a horse starting from a walk then trotting plus cantering and finally ending in a gallop. Observe how in every stage its legs moves in different way; furthermore, the relation between each leg, their rhythm and synchronization is directly connected with the speed of his march.

The Madmad / El Loco

Back to the roots... an inspiring text from Khalil Gibran for my "Task project" animation.

You ask me how I became a madman. It happened thus: One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all my masks were stolen -- the seven masks I have fashioned and worn in seven lives -- I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting, "Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves."
Men and women laughed at me and some ran to their houses in fear of me.
And when I reached the market place, a youth standing on a house-top cried, "He is a madman." I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time the sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, "Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks."
Thus I became a madman.
And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.
But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief.

Me preguntáis como me volví loco. Así sucedió:
Un día, mucho antes de que nacieran los dioses, desperté de un profundo sueño y descubrí que me habían robado todas mis máscaras -si; las siete máscaras que yo mismo me había confeccionado, y que llevé en siete vidas distintas-; corrí sin máscara por las calles atestadas de gente, gritando:-¡Ladrones! ¡Ladrones! ¡Malditos ladrones!
Hombres y mujeres se reían de mí, y al verme, varias personas, llenas de espanto, corrieron a refugiarse en sus casas. Y cuando llegué a la plaza del mercado, un joven, de pie en la azotea de su casa, señalándome gritó:-Miren! ¡Es un loco!
Alcé la cabeza para ver quién gritaba, y por vez primera el sol besó mi desnudo rostro, y mi alma se inflamó de amor al sol, y ya no quise tener máscaras. Y como si fuera presa de un trance, grité:-¡Benditos! ¡Benditos sean los ladrones que me robaron mis máscaras!
Así fue que me convertí en un loco.
Y en mi locura he hallado libertad y seguridad; la libertad de la soledad y la seguridad de no ser comprendido, pues quienes nos comprenden esclavizan una parte de nuestro ser.
Pero no dejéis que me enorgullezca demasiado de mi seguridad; ni siquiera el ladrón encarcelado está a salvo de otro ladrón.

This character supposed to be an hybrid between Scarface and a fangtooth fish. This particular fish moves quite frenetic, is not the common relaxed and soft fish behavior.
