Walk cycle studies

posted in: PRO4, Work in Progress | 0

I’ve studied with excitement the effect of a walk cycle on my main character of my project for University (PRO4) in recent days in different variations.

For the beginning scene, I’ve chosen a lightweight and free movement – a child who discovers the world with open mind and joy of nature. Below you could see my sketches of this first motion sequence.

The look of the final outcome of this animated short changed afterwards. Nevertheless, it was a great experience to try a walk cycle with frame-by-frame animation at this point. I discovered some difficulties with the clothes for example. How the light is falling on the poncho isn’t that easy to catch on paper. Especially without any reference. Therefore, I made some more experiences.
