Walk Cycles

ok here's a slightly better post than the last, here's another look back to old work, just like the bouncing ball here's a flashback of last year when i was impatient and first tried toon boom, from the limited knowledge i had i tried to animate a walk cycle, and to be honest despite how dodgey it is i like it.. 

anyway, the rest of the video contains my current work on the pink panther, side and front walk cycles

here are external somewhat higher quality links to movs of each pink panther walk cycle:



anyway, i hope you enjoy, and as always please comment, its greatly appreciated, 
thanks.

The Pink Panther stuff looks really great!

What kind of copy stand do you use?

thanks man!

i'll have to get back to you on the specifics, its just whatever one was available from my local camera shop, its about 100 cm tall with a sony dv 8 handycam mounted on it

So would you say you recommend using a standard-issue photo copy stand for animation (as long as it can support the camera)?

I was under the impression that you needed something more specialized... I'm trying to start out with animation myself and I'm trying to figure out what kind of gear I should buy (or build).

right, mine is a jessops copystand, i'll upload a photo and diagram on my resources post, a standard issue copystand is more than fine, a specialised one isn't necessasy, we use a similar set up in college to my one at home im really obsessive with this stuff, do you use mac or pc? if you have any questions or need any info i'll be more than happy to help if i can

Cool... Thanks a lot, man!

I'll be watching your development, and you better believe I'll have a load of questions for you along the way!

(Oh, and I'm a Mac user, btw)
