View Full Version : Suave Walk Cycle

11 November 2004, 05:44 AM
Hey everyone,

I hardly ever post here and i'm trying once again to change that around. The following is an animation i'm hoping will be worthy of being placed in my demo reel for 2004. It's still a WIP so i need your comments and critiques! I did this today. Tomorrow i'll be doing something else.

Anyway, let me know what you'd change, what looks like crap, etc etc.

I like it its quirky and funny though i do feel the feet should move a bit more at least with some secondary motion as when they just stop it does look a little strange . Good job

I think it's great. Although I agree with RyanDHale in that the legs are a little still compared to the rest of the movement. Maybe bend the knees out on the bounce, make the back foot twist, i dunno...

The only other thing is the movement of the right arm, it's moves very quickly as it comes forward, then stops suddenly barely moving. It might just be this camera angle, but it looks odd.

I'd love to see you taking this cycle and do a short walk with some facial expressions...

thanks for the comments guys! I appreciate them and i tried to fix some of them. I've added some more exaggerated overlapping on the wrists and changed some of the work on the feet to make the walk look more natural. Lemme know what you think!

and if you really want to, here's a side and a front view:

thanks for looking and thanks again for the critiques!

hey i think the walk looks really good, i think the only prob might be that the hold on the extremes might be a hair to long. other then that i really like the "suave" look. keep it up!
