ANI114- Animation Walk Cycles (and a brick drop test)

I figured I would update my blog with something, so here are a couple of walk cycles I did for my animation class. Neither of these are perfect, but it was definitely a lot of fun to animate these compared to the tests were doing earlier on.

First a mechanical walk cycle. There is a bit of an issue with the dragon the front hand among a couple other things I could fix, but I think for the most part this walk came out pretty successfully.

First pass for a personality walk. It's rough and has some issues that need to be fixed, but this was definitely a lot of fun to animate. The character is a young adult who hates his job and never wants to go to work.

This last test isn't a walk cycle, but I figured that I would share it since it is my favorite of the drop tests I did earlier this semester. Dave Chai seemed to like this test quite a bit. Though there were some rough edges, he was especially happy with the background's design, and he also liked the texture of the motion.
