That's one slinky walking fox, Michael. The movement is terrific.

I mutilated the fox; cut its head off and flipped it. Added a neck and puppet wrapped the legs and tail to try get a stalking stance...and then along came the hare...

Here's the unblurred version. I was rendering another picture and did this image while I was waiting.

Could that just possibly be because you're supposed to .....

Nice animation.

Love the skateboarder Michael!

To my eye, thereís something not quite right with the tied up fox but I canít quite put my finger on it. Something to do with the very bright light on his head? Well done finding the top view chickens!

Yes, the fur is oversaturated. As for the chickens I found a couple of hens on Pixelsquid and tidied them up a bit.

I would never have thought of Pixelsquid for that. But they are getting much better now for people and animals.

Can you get their plugin to work with AP? Or do you guess the best angle in the online library and then download?

I hope I haven't forgotten anyone, but great creative thinking Anna, Tony reduce the highlights of the fox's head and you've got it .

Michael nice action on the skateboarder. I think what David was getting at on the tied-up fox was that the fox, or should I say its head should be more connected with the ground.

David, I don't have have a plugin or an account at Pixelsquid, I just guess the best angle and take a screen shot of what I want.
