Adaptation: Housewife Walk Cycle

Housewife Walk Cycle

This is the basic walk cycle for the Housewife character. In each of the scenes, the Housewife walks in from outside the frame, so getting this right was pretty vital. I've saved the key poses using PoseLib, so I can transfer the basic walk cycle structure between scenes and save myself a bit of time animating what is probably the longest shot in each of the scenes. It needs a bit of polish here and there, but overall, I'm pretty happy with it so far.

As for the rest of the animation, I plan to do several passes of animation, blocking it all in initially and then refining it once everything is in place. I'm cutting it fairly close to the deadline, so at least if I animate this way, I can make sure I have everything basically animated by the crit, even if it isn't perfect in places.

  1. The top walk cycle has this badass strut going on. I like it, but perhaps not quite your intention! :)
