Character study! Walk cycles . . .

Heeey! So what's been happening this summer. Lots really. But tbh I'm so exhausted talking about it all that I shall get right onto topic instead. And so as I listen to 'Captain Beefheart' and wile away a couple of hours I end up one walk cycle heavier than before. This is just a quick basic walk test for the main character of my film pitch. Looking at shapes and deciding on styles in terms of how easy they are to animate. This character went surprisingly well. He has bouncy hair. And a hood. But as long as you pay attention to the ups and downs acting on those two objects I don't think he would pose any problems to an animator. In fact for some of the more intimate scenes. The 'Money shots', I could possibly add a little more into him. That is a test for another day however. Hope you like it so far. 
All the best!!!

Really cool cycle, nice stuff Graeme! :D Particularly liking the swing of the arms. Looking forward to seeing this elusive pitch :)

Hey Kat, thanks. I think for me my fave bit is the bounciness on the hair and the hood. It made me happy when it worked. As for the arms, yer they are variable though. I always animate arms at the same time as everything else. So theyre not as clean in the cycle unfortunately :( but oh well. Thanks for your comment. He he cant wait for the picthes. :D its gonna be fun times
