The last one, I swear: Walk Cycle #3!

This has been a great learning experience for me these past few exercises!

From #1 to #3, it’s almost a leap forward; feelings of accomplishment too.

I don’t feel the need now to work on any more cycles, so here to another adventure! :slight_smile:

Enjoy, and thank you for your kind words and encouragement!

(The antenna is a bit strange in this one, but decided the movement adds character)

I like it looks really nice, did you make the character walk along a path?
i want to make a walking character to, did you now a good tutorial?

Why thank you! :slight_smile:

The forward motion of the character was hand keyed;
In the end I guess the animation technique isn’t blender specific that way. :smiley:

As far as tutorials, you could try:
Gnomon Workshop
Digital Tutors
Blender wiki
Animation Clinic
Guerrilla CG
CG Cookie
Blender 3D tutorials Vimeo Channel

One thing I found to be nice was looking up video footage of people walking or filming yourself doing so, but only using a few frames here and there for reference.

For rigging, this was useful :slight_smile:
