Animation 101

I call this my “accidental short” because I did not intend to make an animated short when I began the project; I was simply practicing animation walk cycles. Ken Harris said, “A walk is the first thing to learn. Learn walks of all kinds, ’cause walks are about the toughest thing to do right.” After I created roughly 4 walk cycles, it occurred to me that with only a little extra effort I could make a short out of these exercises.

This animation was created using Maya Personal Learning Edition. It’s a free license, but it adds a watermark to everything.
