Now comes the really fun part! In this lesson, you will take everything you have learned about animation so far and use those principles to create a walk cycle of your character.


Creating a walk cycle is an essential ability to have as an animator because walking is the most common and basic movement your character will do. The way a character walks also says a lot about their personality.


Using our friend, Tig, as an example, I will show you how to make your character walk, step by step (literally). As you look over my shoulder, I will explain my thought process as I draw and what principles of animation I am using in each frame to create believable movement that expresses the character’s personality.
