Nah forget my comment about the pose. I didn't sleep too well yesterday and probably finished talking about the old one. Still there's something below the knee that doesn't look right. try to play with the perspective on the boot. It looks too frontal.

This is nice, reminds me of Barbarian for the C64.

Crits:

- the pants need some shading, if it is only some furry highlights.
- the edge highlighting on the top of the boots does not make much sense.

I like the muscle separation and definition... this guy probably does 100s of leg extensions  :y:

hehe cool. Some bobbing in his arms when he plants a foot will decrease the upper body's staticness, but also decrease the character's strong masculine rigidity.

Exactly! I tried to animate his arms going up and down but it made him look diminished. If he's actually struggling with that huge sword of his he's not the type to show it  :D

I hate to break this to you because I know a lot of work was put in this buuuuut when walking like that it's more practical to have the leg crossing over do so from the back.  Otherwise you are walking forward with the leg that is further away from the direction you are going and continuing to do so until you stop.  By having the back leg cross behind the front you are making it the leg closest to direction you are going.  I've made this mistake before and I was corrected by my martial artist friend and he was kind enough to show me how awkward it is to cross over in the front.  I just tried it right now and it really puts me off balance.

This is true, but do you think it applies to this kind of walk? This is more like a ... shuffle? He's sort of side stepping, almost cautiously. You might be right and regardless you did provide some very important information (that I tested out myself) we should all keep in mind.


Just tried the Barbarian's walk, it feels like a spy's near a wall kind of quiet creeping. Hmmmm...

Something about the right (his) Quad muscle seems a bit invented. Try getting some references.
