New to Animal Animation- got any resources?

Hey there,

i know the basics of rigging and my way around the dope sheet, NLA editor and already did an animated short film using motion capture and some keyframing. Now i want to step up my game and animate a life-like bear. My problem is, there aren’t any good tutorials online on how to get into that sort of animation. Does anybody here know any good resources, or has some experience with animating life-like animals?

Thanks in advance!
