View Full Version : criticize it! (alien run cycle)

This is a run cycle for a music video that has been in development for a year or so now. No scene in the movie clip... 16 frame cycle (1-15,loop). Any and all comments and criticisms on the cycle would be great. Thanks so much for watching!

If you could save it out again with 'loop' on, it would be easier to critique. Right now, it looks like the arms and upper body aren't opposing the legs... I think they should, even if it's an alien. Also, the upper body might need to be tilted forward a bit. Nice character!

hey man,
great job so far... I agree on the arms also. I would actually try jogging yourself to get the feel right(pretend you are a cartoon too!) Also the alien seems to be a bit too rigid(depending on its personality at the time) I would give a bit more bounch.. especially to the pelvis, and yes bend him forward a bit.

On a side note, the shoulders look to be sticking wayy out from his body, seems a bit unnatural.
And on a positive note, I love the feet. :)

I think he walk too fast

as patconnole suggested he is tick tockin' meaning his arms and legs are on the same side. bipeds have trouble doing this due to balence issues.
