Vanilla walk is done and Revised. The most difficult thing about a walk is the knee popping. In other word, the knee goes from a point to another very fast. It creates a pop.

Class1-Week 2

Hello everyone,

In week 2, I went to the mall and the subway to make some thumbnails. The assigment was to make some thumbnails, choose one, and do a pose in 3D with it. You don't have to draw like a pro. The goal is to put some ideas on paper so you can plan your shot. So here my first homework for animation Mentor.
See ya next week


Some sketches and my final pose with Stu
