April 5

I am done with this series of walk cycles. the whole post of this exersice is to show how by changing the middle extreme of a walk cycle you can get a big variety of different types of walk. On some of the passing positions I had to add a hold so you can register the change. I should have just inbetweened the poses so that I could get a smooth transition and really show how different it could be but I decided not to just for the sake of completing the exercises. Anyway you will see 5 different walk variations here.

More to come.

another one of the point made in the richard williams book was the use of squash and stretch on the figure of a fat guy walking so I took what he had and exaggerated it giving him a floppy sloppy mound of belly fat. I played with what I have learned about anticipation as well. They say you should hold a pose to the very last second before adding a drastic change in order to get good snap and to help the audience really feel the action so I had the fat rise up and hang at the top of the movement and on the down position I it all falls down. I like it. I am starting to really feel the timing of things more naturaly so that makes me happy.
