Sigh. No. I just realized that and now im about to try again with a character rig with upper body hidden at first. That should help me a bit :3

Heeey now that's gettin somewhere!

From the way I was taught though... don't begin to lift the back heel until the frame right before your next contact pose when the front heel places down. This indicates the transfer of weight. For some reason they don't show this with 2d walk cycle examples but it works.

Also, would angle the front foot upwards more before the contacts and lift them a little off the ground. Not sure if this is a dragging flip flop shoe walk... but still try lifting them and don't let the toes cut through the floor on those passing positions.

Good work man!

Thanyou very much bruce! Ill be sure to fix the heel lift part. I also get what you're saying about the lifting of the foot before it contacts to the ground. Ive been hesitating to do it for some reason but ill try doing it now. Thankyou for the points

an update:

thanks for the help, bruce! also, if there's still some things that feel wrong, please let me know.
(why is this thread and the 11secondclub thread so dead? or is it that noob animations are boring? xD )

new clip. this time, a full body vanilla walk. also, this is the first time i did a stepped blocking so, help me out pls :3
  04 April 2018
Not quite the best use of blocking here because it's actually making things harder to see, but I can see you need to keep the upper torso moving forward and not let it stick for 2 frames at those contact poses! Right now it's making knee pop and screwing up your weight distribution.

Did you check out that facebook group? Any good?
  04 April 2018
Ah well im new to blocking. I guess there's a lot to learn in that too. I'll check out some videos on it on guess.
I have joined a few Facebook groups but they mostly pay attention to good animators, sadly xD but im still posting there everytime. Sometimes i do get help, which is great
Thanks bruce! Be back after splining this
