In this lesson, instructor Michael Cedeno will teach you how to animate a progressive walk with attitude. You will learn to design appealing characters and develop suitable walks to support the narratives of your animation. Michael will demonstrate drawing the contact and passing poses first before tackling the in-between poses.

This lesson belongs to the course Walk and Run Cycles in Animation. In this 5-week course, Michael Cedeno and Kathleen Quaife-Hodge will take you through a super informative journey on how to animate walk and run cycles. Kathleen will introduce you to the treadmill walk and the basic progressive walk. Then, Michael will show you how to take these walks to another level by adding character and attitude. You will also explore the dynamics of animating the basic progressive run and the treadmill run. After this course, you will gain greater confidence in creating animations that walk or run off your page.

Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
