New walk cycle

reading the richard williams book. read it more closely this time and it didn't take nearly as long to do this walk cycle. he was saying the walk cycle is one of the most difficult things in animation. I can belieave it. it is easy to get arms and legs confused. I notised in the art of disney book I have they pust arms and legs in 3 different colors when working on diffucult walks and movements so they can keep them from getting confused. Williams also talks about using different colors when you start out with the walks. so I went ahead and did this acording to the book. the first of many.

Yeah it's very easy to get confused with walk cycles, especially as it becomes more complicated. I like the fact that you have him stomping his feet as he walks (don't know if that was intentional or not) to show the weight. It'll be interesting to see what type of walk this becomes if you decide to add arm movements to this cycle. The only thing I would say is that his torso seems to lean back quite a bit in comparison with how planted his feet are, but it's just practice so whatever. Overall, good start.

Love the start of this. The color is nice and I'm going to have to check out that book. I can't wait for you to put the bounce in it and arms. I'll post a walk tomorrow! :)
