Trying for a runway walk style

Well what do you think.

looking great....what a sexy butt....:eek:

She looks a bit stiff but it is really looking good!

It's looking really good. I think what it needs is a little bit of an up and down motion. Right now, if you look at her, the shoulders stay at the same height thoughout the whole walk cycle. This is what is making her look stiff.

Looks great! Like mohh siad, make her up and down motion more notable. When she transfers her weight from one foot to another her body should move up and down a bit more. And maybe make the arm movement a bit more pronounced. Right now the most movement is in her wrists.

I hate to nit-pick on someting that's not a part of the animation, but her hands, feet and head look really small...
On the animation, I think she's "climbing" to much, her legs are never straight. Even when she "swings" em forwards. I'd say, make the steps a bit bigger and put some more heel into it.

Looks good.

Joril: What do you mean with "put more heel into it", do you mean she should put more weight on the heel when she walks?
I'm by no means an expert, but I'm guessing that if you try to step on the heel too much with boots like that (or at least with high heel shoes) it would break the heel and/or cause you to fall.
But as I said, I'm no expert with heeled shoes, so I could be totally wrong :D
The shape of the lower leg might be a bit off and makes the animation look a bit awkward or something.

I didn't say "walk on heels", just let the foot (and the leg) hit the grond under a bigger angle. Come on, you've seen woman walk before, right?
The way she walks now, it's almost as if she's walking on tiptoes.
Have you ever seen models strut down the catwalk (-> "Trying for a runway walk style")? They're fast!
There's more power in the step.

Trying to get thsoe feet and weight transfer right.

Here we go again.

Second part is the revision.

BTW thanks for all the help so far.

What changed?
She's still dragging her feet around.

Nice butt.. The animation was a wee bit stiff, but not all that bad.. i think she needs more up and down movement.. Nice work though....

What codec did you use? I thought I had them all, getting the "unsupported file type" message in win and Premiere...

Lead with the hips. and have the feet step closer to or on the center axis and for an even more feminine or fashion walk, CROSS OVER the axis. Women, especially runway models, walk almost as if on a tightrope. It is difficult to see from this angle (try showing us a 3/4 view)

Also...Try offsetting the timing
Try this Step... Shift Step... Shift as opposed to stepshift stepshift

This should add a nice accentuation to the hips and ass.
I don't think there would be a need or want for the previously mentioned up and down movement. Unless you are going for a more quick and sassy walk. But from the pace of the animation you have shown so far it is a little more sultry. Correct me if I am wrong. If so I have some suggestions to make it spunky.

Hope that helps.

One more try still just a side view

Second part is the second revision. A little more bounce to the step. Feet are slower on forward motion a start and faster to contact. Stride is lengthened a bit Steps are a bit higher.

Codec is latest Divx

It's looking good... for runway model pics and video, try:

go to the "Shop the Runway" section, there's a photo gallery there, you'll see the stylized poses that the models use. They may also have some video clips from last years t.v. production.

You might also study this:

It's from a different angle, but you can really study this walk. Koryh talked about "tightrope" walking -- this one does.
