Walk Cycles

Today we're going to try and make your walking stick person look just a bit more realistic.

Walking Cycles

Motion has to appear smooth and seem realistic to convince people that your character is actually moving.

The video outlines four poses that a walking character should use. As they suggest, since you're a beginner, just use two of them.

Your walk should take about two seconds, which is about 24 frames.

As well, rather than having your figure move from one side of the stage to the other, have something behind the figure move, such as a tree, building, or another person.
