Christmas Gif Walk Cycle

A  really nice concise course and a great introduction to effectively using paths to animate characters.  I remember many frustrating times trying to do something similar with shape tweening in flash.  This was a great way to quickly build a walk offering an easy way to ajust the character.  I made a few practice runs with vector copies of Frasers character.  I then tried going for a more textural look using some patterns and texture I made in photoshop and animated using layer shapes and masks.The shadow and lighting with animated paths with adjustment layers.

 I did the arms using puppet pins rather than animated stroke paths.  The tree I animated with reference to Daniel Savage's course on Character Animation in AE.
