Wolf AwakensThis is the start of my animation on the wolf. I wanted the wolf to shake himself awake. This would show the audience he has been asleep for a long time and has to shake himself awake to get rid of the stiffness. He is also make out of brick so I will be adding tiny bits of rock that are going to fall off of him when he shakes to give that feel of him standing there for a long time. Getting rid of all the dust and rocks that have been settling on him for a while. This is just a playblast. However noticing the animation he seems a little too slow which needs to be rectified, plus the way he jumps on the wall is still not quite right so I plan on working on that this afternoon.
ResearchI have been looking into the movement of wild wolves, the way a head might bob up and down when running. The way a wolf might hunt or track prey. How the interact with things in their environment and how the might react to things in their surroundings. Here are some links from Youtube.

I have also been working on the poem, taking my tutors advise by making some of the lines longer.
I believe it is coming along well and I do like this new version.
Mantled on stone I am positioned in my place
Stiff and trapped my paws itching to bring you my pace
The Circular man with his small and tall hands will awaken me to the night with one strike.
Rays of silver light from the depths of the night are going to give me life.
Holding your breath it makes you tense
The cloaking shadows bringing the suspense
Light to my dark, you shake
In one swipe the light will break
In the depths of silence hear the rumbling of my growl
Hair prickles to life at my howl
Seeing your perfect life drained
As Guardians cannot be contained
Let us finish this mindless chase
Stand proud in your place, face to face
Swimming in my yellow eyes
Find me in your heart as we now have our ties.
You know I have been awakened
