The evolution of Man(fred)


An overview of the steps I took during the making of this walkcycle. I hadn’t animated frame-by-frame in a long time so this was actually quite challenging. After failing the first few times and getting more and more frustrated with myself (was it always this hard?!) I decided I needed to take a step back. I watched and analysed a bunch of monkey video’s, walked around like monkey in my house and planned out the animation on paper. After I had taken these steps I felt so much more confident to start animating again. I think it’s fun to really see the walkcycle evolve. Next step will be adding some color to Manfred and his world…150128-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v01   150129-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v02150129-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v03150129-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v04   150130-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v05150204-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v06150208-ManfredtheMonkey-walkcycle01-v12
