The Magic of Walk Cycles Free Crack + Key Download
Put on your magic hat & get ready to push your animation skills to the next level cuz in this course we’ll reveal the secrets behind smooth walk cycles.
What is this course about?
Back in my more active Patreon days I noticed an immense interest for walk cycles. My walk cycle tutorial, which was very surface level, was the most popular tutorial I ever made by a factor of a lot.. This eventually led me to ponder on a more indepth course.
Now, making a course on say a given software is one thing but making a course on something so artistic as walk cycles is a totally different beast. Good news though!
After months of work I’ve finally cracked the nut and made a course that is both logical and digestible and will leave no question marks as how to make your character bounce a long down the timeline.
So if you already have some basic knowledge of After Effects and Illustrator I’m inviting you to my animation magic classes.
Style is everything in animation. Well there’re also timing, acting, staging, antici…. Ok, so perhaps style is not everything in animation but a huge google.com of it nevertheless. When planning this course, I drew inspiration from the Golden Age of animation when such greats as Walt Disney and Max Fleischer laid the foundation for everything we’re doing here today. Yup, in this way, you can be sure that the knowledge you learn here will never go out of style.
Bring out another dimension in your walk cycles that will impress even the pickiest of viewers. How to do this? Well, the key word in this course is “smooth”. Yes, everyone likes watching a smooth walk cycle, it’s just a fact. Believe me cuz I just made it up. Fact or not, we all do like watching stuff that is perfected. So, don’t put your future characters in a choppy walk cycle, give them the Magic Walk Cycle treatment instead.

Level up your skill set
When I see that we already are doing a video game metaphor, I will take it one step further. This course is by no means the final boss. It’s more like that sword in the forest that you run around a whole game trying to find. Cuz you know that once you find it, you will be unstoppable. That’s why this course is for you. It’s a magical sword of animation knowledge. OK, now I just killed this metaphor, but you get it.
My walk cycle set-up
In the first lesson we’ll take a quick look on how I set up my walk cycles for animation.
Timing the upper body
The most crucial google.com of any Walk cycle, or animation for that matter, is the timing so in this lesson I’ll show you how I set the timing of my walk-cycle by animating the upper body first. We’ll also take a quick look on how you can illustrate cartoon hands in under 2 minutes.
