Iso walking animation

This is my first iso animation, so any critique is appreciated.


Made to (possibly) be used in this project:

I really like this character and his walk a lot. I don't really have any critiques.

Nice and cute, although the furthest back frame of the nearside arm snaps quite badly so you might want to do some sub-pixel stuff in the lead up to that frame. Also it seems like the whole body is bouncing up and down (including the legs) rather than the torso as a result of the legs being bent or straight. I'm not even sure the bounce is in-time with the floored foot passing under the body, tbh. But it's pretty cute all the same. Personally a little side-to-side rotation in the body and the tail wouldn't go amiss, though.

Altough, I would say it's a very fast paced walk.. I think the size of the character makes up for that. Superb work.

Overall a really nice job. I agree with Derek's comments, although they're pretty minor. One thing you might do that'll add loads of personality is having things bob. If you make the back section of his little head fin dip slightly and the thing on his back (wing?) do the same, very subtly and for only 1 frame per bounce (generally the frame after he falls, although this anim is so fast it might be on the same frame) it really brings the character to life.

Did you create the original character or just the animation because you may want to post your reference if the character wasn't originally yours.
thanks Dogmeat!
