Arrow Stealing From a Grocery Store

Hi! thanks for checking out this post,
It's another LowMan practice concentrating on blending a walk to a run. I'm planning the final will have the grocery store model completed and a huge deli dude shaking a knife or his fist out the door yelling.


Any critiques?

first thing I noticed, is that when he takes off running,, his strides are just a wide as when he walks.. naturally when you run you stride can actually double..therefore you cover more distance and go faster..

good point. Thanks William, hhmmm I'm suprised I didn't catch that considering how obvious it was.. changed it and it looks way more like a run! Anything else critiquable?

glad to help looks much better,, maybe a bit more lean forward in the run to lead with the shoulders.


just a thought..
you should also have him turn his head, shoulders then torso a bit to the left between the second and third steps, to see whats behind the door, then return forward. Because you always want to check your 6 when your running from the law.

Nice. I think the transition from walk to run could be a little better though. I feel like when he starts running, he should be moving further forward. He seems to stay in the same place for too long. Nothing too big, just an idea. I like the fact that he doesn't look back. Nice touch.
