I wasn't sure where to put this, so feel free to move it to a better place if needed.
Thank you for posting, very handy reference for animation! I've always tried to show the correct degree of pastern movement in my animations, hopefully successfully (equivalents for Harry are on my 'in progress' list, but that's about a mile long). Mainly posting here now to help remind myself to come back to it once I'm back from holiday next week (and also to remind myself to finish the horseshoes already).

Looking great. One suggestion if I may ? I think the pistols should be turned around..so butt of handle facing rider..easier to get hand around pistol when drawing the pistol from holster, . The rider doesn't need to twist his hand around to draw pistol ?
actually no... I have observed that all pistols have the handle forward, the reason probably being that you draw them over cross. And then the handle is in the right position. Overcross makes sense, because the holsters are tilted to the center and it would be a lot more awkward to draw the pistol same side as you have to twist your wrist into an unnatural position.

oops. Already answered. Still... it did strike me as strange too initially

Yeah..it's looking good..but I suspect he's referring to the Napoleonic French or British hussar of the 1815 era ?
lol.. yes.. I guess there is more use to the dolman and goldbraid uniform set, as that was very widely used throughout that area and later and its mainly a matter of detailing to distinguish the different regiments and armies. The winged hussar is a fantastic armour but I am not much for hardware. My programs are better suited to do clothing stuff. So... once I've done the saddle and bridle... (another EUW!) I will probably tackle a basic uniform which will allow customisation.

wow.. cool idea! for the lion the whale shark texture would look very good.
I agree! It needs a little more morphing to actually work for the lion, which I don't have the skills to do, but it was close enough that it only took a tiny bit of post work. I totally love these tails! And yes, I need more textures! lol.

In ancient Greece a Makara was any 1/2 fish animal, and they had a variety of them, goat, lion, etc. What was it with the Greeks and Romans and Egyptians all making these 1/2 animals, Anubis, Bast, Chimeras, Centaurs, Fauns...etc.

This is one of my very favorite pictures! When I originally created it, I used the fawns that are free from Lyne. But I was tempted to do it again with the mini horse foal I made using the HiveWire Horse.

Wiking night

Ok... nothing in this scene actually fits together. Wikings weren't really horsemen, the saddle is different from what they would have had, the saddle cloth is more scythian than anything else (which doesn't go with the saddle, they had just pillows) and the sword is Elvish...

Still, I like it how it came out. I am now in the process of rigging the saddle and stuff... which might be quite a challenge. We will see how things turn out. And then I need to do the proper bridle... with TWO sets of reins!
