Ralphy's Walk Cycle
Hello! Sorry for the lack of updates for a while. It's the end of the summer, which usually tends to get pretty busy. Nonetheless, here is a walk cycle I did earlier on this summer of my character Ralphy from the last character design assignment in first year. There are lots of things wrong with this walk cycle, but I don't think I'll fix them. The head, for example, tilts far more in one direction than it does in the other direction. The character also feels rather weightless: he isn't really rising much higher off the ground, when he's supported by one foot. Still, there are several things I am happy with, such as the tail and the legs. I didn't end up putting the arms on, but they are meant to be sticking straight out, swinging back and forth, showing the curiousity of this little dino :) Okay, enough talk: here's the animation.
