Cat walk cycle

Here's my first walk cycle.
There are some things that need working on, but overall I'm pretty happy with this as my first attempt at a quadruped walk cycle.

Animals and Creatures


I'm enjoying the start of the new Animals and Creatures course. I've already learnt all kinds of interesting things, but animating quadrupeds in a realistic manner is going to be a big challenge.

I'm sure people are interested to see what the new course consists of, so I'll do my best to post on semi-regular basis so you can watch my progress.

Week 1, we had to do a couple of still poses that were dynamic with nice lines of action, showing weight etc.

Week 2, we had to do vanilla walk cycle.

We're just starting Week 3 now, where we do an advanced walk.

I'm finding it a challenge getting to grips with the rig (for example in the pouncing pose, I couldn't get those front arms bent to match the photo), but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

Here are my poses - I'll post the walk cycle in the next couple of days.

Thanks for reading!
