Inspiration from animals
« on: May 21, 2012, 04:01:57 PM »
Does anyone else get inspired by seeing animals move around? If so, what animals? Personally, I get inspired by cats. Whenever I see one running or jumping I just admire how flowy and effortless the movement seems. One of my goals is to be like a cat.

Absolutely!!!! Personally I think this is a great example of how effortless it is for cats when it comes to movement. You can see why they call it a cat leap:

That video is one of the best things I have seen on the computer ever. About the cat, I have never seen anything like that happen. Maybe it is because my familys cats stay outside for most of there life, so they are used to things like that.

Haha I think the ledge was slippery, you can see he was trying to jump since his legs were completely extended and his feet just slid

I would say monkeys are my greatest inspiration. Their fluidity is astonishing really.
