Ladies and Gentlemen!
Here is the new character. THE PANTHER.
He's a tough type, knows his stuff and is past his prime. (Essentially that kid moose character but all grown up now and not a moose anymore at all).
Here is some test animation of him running. I like how it came out, though I'll obviously have to work on my consistencies a bit. Timing wise, thus far I can dig it.
(You may have to click on it to play it, if not save the image and open it in a new window in your web browser.)
Surely more tomorrow. Till then.
