Flying Akela Taka - Animation by akelataka Flying Akela Taka - Animation by akelataka
*dies* Yes... my very first animation (using this sketchy style). I have absolutely NO idea why I had to start with such a hard theme, as a winged flying wolf is. And that is why it looks so ... so X-D I know that in some frames the wings are totally off. BUT I am still proud of this piece, my little flying self... ^^ It is the first time, so please, be kind to me :)


(And next time, do something easier, Akela Taka. Like singing Jigglypuff or so.)

EDIT: Because of a high demand, I created a step-by-step guide on how I made this animation. Please, before you ask any questions related to it, see the tutorial here: [link]

I was trying out some animation and I was curious how you were able to upload this as a GIF on DA? I am struggling.

Well I did this without a problem, but that was years ago. Since then, DA changed a LOT... so I believe it is very different now :-/

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
I had to watch it a couple of times to really notice it, but I love how just above the wolf tail are the bird feathers. It really makes the whole thing better. I know that birds can't fly properly without their tail feathers to steer them (winged people without tail feathers really bother me >.<), and it made me happy to see you incorporate that to add proper flight to you wolf.

Thank you. Thats right, if I tried to fly inside my mind without the tail feathers, it wasnt good... :-D So I had to add them ;)

Thenks :) Also thank you for offering me to participate in your project, but unfortunately, I wouldn't have time for that. I don't have much time for drawing or cosplaying either, although I would love do both of them more often... :-/

Wow this is absolutely gorgeous! I was making an animated piece that required a bit of flying wolf take off and as you know there aren't any realistic references out there. So I threw it in google and holy crap I can't believe my eyes! This is beautiful and perfect! Exactly how I would picture it! I'm using this as a reference if you don't mind, and this is amazing- I forgot to tell you that. c:

Thank you :) Although it is not all that realistic, I believe the wolf would not be able to just jump like that and fly, she would need to jump DOWN the cliff... but the animation is old and I knew little about flying physics then.
