Thanks for sharing this! Having seen your asymmetrical Kentrosaurus paired with your earlier symmetrical version I can see how awkward the gait of my trike is. The good thing about it is it should be easy to fix. I only started animation a few months ago, and I’ve not studied gaits very carefully, but your blog is a wealth of information!

I was thinking that myself… as its digital, you could grab those parts out in a layer in photoshop and offset them, then draw in the missing parts.
Interesting how obvious that symmetry is once you’ve got your brain about it. I’m still trying to digest it myself, as it’s only really an offset in the forelimbs, and I suspect would be tied to the degree to which the center of mass shifts forward.
