*finished-Lizardman walk-animation [C&C]

on: November 29, 2006, 06:24:50 pm
yus, just felt like doing this (oooh and it felt good :mean:)

It's a walking-animation of a lizardman but before I colour it I need C&C on the animation itself, how is the motion. Are the arms moving in a correct way etc...

thanks ;)

-edit, haha just noticed how the hands slapped back to the ground, gonna change that in a minute :hehe: *changed*

The way that his arms are animating, the way they're hitting the ground, is off.

Maybe there needs to be more followthrough when they swing back? Is he actually pushing up with his arms, like a gorilla, or are they supposed to just be swinging? Right now, it looks like an animation of your character walking backwards. The arms just seem odd in general - are the elbow joints supposed to be reversed? Are they tentacles?

Everything else looks great.. the head bobbing side to side as he walks looks perfect.

thanks Akzidenz, I worked on it and I guess its still not right but it took me a long time to figure out how a gorilla/hunched creature walks.

are you moving the hands and arms in synch on purpose?


just asked cos they usually swing opposite one another...?

i.e left hand forward left foot back... right foot forward right arm back?

haha yeah I know, it's kinda difficult to figure it out. Normally the hands stay on ground when moving like that, but when let's say the right legs moves forward, the right arms moves forward too. That's how I experimented it

If you're going for a gorilla type walk, it never hurts to look up some references.

Here's a nice (but short) video:
