A cat walk cycle

I spent a few hours trying my hand at a “walk cycle”. This is a video which can be looped to produce an infinite walk. I chose a cat as the subject (Toupac, my girlfriend’s family cat). I used this walk cycle guide (actually for a dog but I assume dogs have similar gaits to cats). I used a “pixel art” style, which made this a bit simpler, and makes it possible to use this in future for a retro game. I made this using GIMP.

I just released Vidrio, a free app for macOS and Windows to make your screen-sharing awesomely holographic. Vidrio shows your webcam video on your screen, just like a mirror. Then you just share or record your screen with Zoom, QuickTime, or any other app. Vidrio makes your presentations effortlessly engaging, showing your gestures, gazes, and expressions. #1 on Product Hunt. Available for macOS and Windows.
