Lion Locomotion

Since I've chosen to animate the lion, I researched into the way the animal moves. I found Eadweard Muybridge's Descriptive Zoopraxography really helpful. He thoroughly studied the movement of animals through electro-photographic investigation in 1872.

I used this Zoopraxiscope of a lion walking as a helpful guideline as it captures each stage of the lions body as it walks, also when the dial is turned it becomes an animation.
