[WiP] Dude walking stealthily

on: July 25, 2007, 02:48:12 am
Hey pixelites :)
No need to hide that i'm a total newbie at animating stuff, especially characters, and so i tried with this one :

I know there is flaws, but i can't figure out how to improve it

Edit: a little modification on the scarf and the coat

I think it's cool as is, but if you want to go all out...

(from the Preston Blair book)
These are pretty heavily exaggerated, but useful as guides. I think the tiptoe one's closest to what you're trying to do, with a bit of sneak. You need him to crouch a bit, I think, and he should pull his limbs right in as much as possible, trying to stay small. I think it could use more head bob, though.

stealth walks are all about making the step whitout switching weight at all, only when both feet are on the ground should the weight shift

looks good but i think that the foot closest to the viewer is turned strange.  It looks like the tip of his foot is pointing at me and it should be pointing forward. Right now it looks to me like he is limping with a crooked foot but i like the character and animation alot. I think fixing the foot should make it look more natural. Great work though!
