Just thought I would share a couple Maya playblasts of Dare’s various run animations. For the most part our little hero runs on two legs to show his more human qualities but on occasions he reverts back to his more primal roots and runs on all fours.

Since Dare is being rendered as part of a 2D sprite based game I wanted to keep each animation short and snappy. His final on-screen image size will actually be quite small too, which also had to be taken into consideration when setting up each animation.

I’ll get some video put together showing the final renders of Dare running within one of the game’s actual levels. But in the meantime, enjoy the two playblasts above!
