Project Description

Animate A Walk Cycle For Your Monster

83e4af09

For the class project you'll be animating a walk cycle for your monster character in After Effects. You can use your own character from part 1, or download and use one of mine below. Check out my pinterest board fill with walk cycles here.

Project Steps:

  1. Create a Class Project and share your character design from part 1
  2. Decide what type of walk cycle you'll be animating
  3. Post a final looping GIF of your character walking
