Game Character Walk Cycle... The Legs... & Poses #10

Research:
While researching different poses for the Game Character, specifically Cowboy & Cowgirl poses, it turned out to be a lot more difficult than I first thought to avoid overly sexualised images.

Character Poses:



Here you'll find the beginning of a walk cycle for a game character. So far we have seen the walk cycle for a blob monster. Now a human type game character... so far we have the leg animation set down in stone. There was a slight wobble in the animation, but upon looking at the graph editor, it turned out to be a slight kink in one of the curves.

So with that sorted out, here is a little look at what I have so far...

Animation by: Scott Westwater.

Next I need to work on the Arms and then add all the secondary animation. The secondary animation will include stuff like the tassels hanging from the characters coat arms, the tail of the coat, the gun holster etc..
