"Animating a 3/4 View Walk Cycle"
This tutorial will take you through each step in creating a 3/4 view walk cycle. Walk cycles from this angle can be very tricky to animate correctly, but you'll be shown exactly how to get it right. You'll also learn:
The importance of proper perspective in the poses.
When to use symbols and when hand drawn art is needed.
How to create a smooth looking cycle at different frame rates.
The advantages and disadvantages of using motion tweening the cycle.
*BONUS: This tutorial also comes with the actual rough animation flash file (.fla) that is used in the video. With the rough animation as your template, you will be able to animate your own 3/4 character walk cycles even quicker!
