In lesson today, we started to learn walk cycles. First we need to do a little research, on how walking in real life looks. So I recorded many various walk cycle by filming me and one of my friends.

After we recorded we use then and some other notes to start a walk cycles. Walk cycles show they go in a loop. There are five main points in a walk cycle:

-Contact

-In-Between

-Middle Point

-In-Between

-Contact

From the second contact you now can loop it to a infinty video loop of someone walking forever. Walk cycle seem quite advance and big to do but when you get hand of them they are quite simple to do. You can just loop it and then you finshed with that walk cycle!

There are many different walk cycles to show and give different moods. For example you can have a sad walk cycle by making the character slow and back bent forwards with a slugish leg walk cycle with his arms being loose and sloppy.
