Week 8 walk cycle


This week was doing a simple walk cycle and I believe this was the hardest one as I have never made an animation before. First, I went to google and went looking for references as I was a little lost on where to start, I then found this reference which helped as I could see where the head was meant to be at different points in the walk. I made a new layer for each movement of the legs and assigned them each to a layer. I did a rough sketch first that was rather messy but helped me understand the leg movement and once I felt it looked smooth enough I made duplicates of the layers and moved them down so the feet lined up so he walks from one side of the screen to the other. I enjoy his movement as he has a stride in his step which is rather comical suitable for an animated piece.
