I'm working on re-animating Toothless with the model from Wild Skies. Here's a GIF of what I have so far:

I think there's a little too much bend on the down stroke. It looks like the elbows in his wings are double jointed. This animation would go great on a shadow kargarok from legend of Zelda twilight princess because their wings DO kind of do that and I keep seeing that creature when looking at this even though that's not what I'm looking at.

The wing flap is this odd balance between his gentle, gliding flight, and his speedy flight.

 

In his gliding flight, he only gently bats his wings. They should go just below the red line on your picture.

In his speedy flight, his wing tips are nearly touching on the down beat.

 

The 'cheat sheet' flight scenes from HTTYD 1 are a perfect example.

Running around aimlessly, what about you?

The tail reminds me of the Titan Scauldron's flappy tail when it's flying (aka my absolute fave animation in game) :)

ABOUT ME

You can call me Drake, and I’ve played SoD from the times of old, when the only dragon newbies got was the hatchling they picked, no free broad-wing. I missed this game when I went on hiatus a while ago, so I'll try to not leave it behind again (well, at least not for a while anyways.)

 

I love to hang out at the Ice-Fishing-Patch in the school and take down ships. Feel free to chat if you find me!

The wings have deffinitly improved. But Toothless's tail only really does a full on whale-like motion when he's hovering or swimming. It should react a little to his flaps but Tootless's tail has proven to be a little stiff when in flight. Lots of dragons do have tails like that so don't throw away the idea of the animation as being a cool one or one that is just bad. It's just a little extreme for Toothless spesificly. It IS however still an improvment on not moving at all.

Oh my gosh that looks so much better.

Still have to agree with Hyper though about the tail; it looks really good, don't get me wrong, but his tail is used more for stabilization in flight instead of maintaining speed. Currently it looks somewhat like a dolphin tail.

It looks so cool! I wish this was actually released on SoD, it would look infinitely better. The tail should be quite stiff, and the fins tend to wobble in the wind, if that helps. Also, I realised the body moves down with the wings and up with them, and I think Mr Gravity and Mr Science would prefer it if on the down flap, the momentum thrusts his body up a little. I love it though!

Amazing! Maybe on the downflap angle the wings more, as it would catch more air and provide more thrust with a slight angle. It's so cool! I would pester the admins for months to get you animating this in-game.
