In this lesson, instructor Michael Cedeno will teach you how to animate a treadmill walk with attitude. You will watch Michael refines the rough pencil test of a character walk cycle he has created. He will show you how to adjust and push the intensity of the character’s 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.
