Animation!

Its been quite here lately… But finally gotten to some animation. Since I felt quite rusty, I started off small with the OldWoman’s walk cycle with the ladder. The workflow that I want to get comfortable with is to:

  1. Video Reference
  2. Thumb
  3. Animate

This might seem like a given, but when working on a short film like this its tempting to skip a few steps because of the amount of shots to be done. For this film I really want to craft the animation, and not just take first idea poses. So for the walk cycle this is the three steps:

The animation is still in linear, just to test the motion. I still feel the could be more character in the walk. But please do comment, as always I love feedback:-)

  1. Hey, i’d be tempted to lean her forward more, like you were going for in the video reference. Not a bad start man.

  2. I kinda imagine her dragging the ladder behind her, really like the walk though think it shows age and that her joints have seized up.

    • I did try with video reference of me dragging the ladder behind me, but it felt too depressed. Although she is fed up with the constant tweaking, she is not depressed. Just grumpy.
