After doing a few more complicated shots lately, I figured it was time to try something simple. I haven’t done a walk cycle since the earliest classes at Animation Mentor, and that wasn’t even full body animation. Walk cycles may not be the most interesting animation in the world, but it’s still really good practice. I didn’t want to do a completely vanilla walk, so I looked around for some nice props to try to add some resemblance of personality to the whole thing.
There is still some minor polishing that needs to be done before I consider the shot complete, and I have gotten a bunch of great feedback from people at the AM forums that has been really helpful, so I will be having another look at it later this week.
