newbie walkcycle

on: September 15, 2008, 12:43:35 am
Hello everyone ...
I downloaded GraphicsGale a couple of days ago and now I found the time to sit down and try it out
so I thought I would post it here ... I'm pretty new to pixelart (and animation for that matter) so I've
probably done a lot of mistakes ...
Any comments and critique would be appreciated  :)

The walking isn't too realistic ... actually I never see people walk like this ... I like it this way though ...
(maybe I should make the ponytail move more?)
I used myself (walking as I do when I pretend I'm in an adventure game that is) for reference ...
sadly I don't have a video camera so you can't see the striking resemblance ...
I think I'll do somethin more realistic later too ... so any tips for making realistic walking would also be nice ...

I started out by making a picture of me (avatar picture) btw ... so feel free to give some critique bout that too :)

not a bad start!
why the shrivled foot?
that far foot is shrinking like a violet.
also, there is a little hitch in the strid right where the foot rolls off the toe and rises.

Looking at the animation today I think I can see what you're saying ...
I think this here is an improvement:

might just be that I've gotten blind from looking at it for too long though ...
