Jen's 2D Digital Animation: My Walk Cycle. This is my version of the basic walk cycle which we were set for homework.

Jen's 2D Digital Animation: My Walk Cycle

I decided I wanted to try animating a full character rather than just a pair of legs, since I wanted to apply weight and timing to the walk. I wanted the walk to be happy and a little bouncy, so I chose a young girl character, keeping her as simple as possible so as not to over complicate things with clothes and hair. Prof. Spevack.

Animateducated: Project 5: The Sack Drop. The Flour Sack was a popular as an animation test at the Disney studio in the 1930s because it was more organic in movement than a bouncing ball, focusing more attention to weight, overlapping action and how the sack changes shape over time.

Academy of Art Character and Creature Design Notes: A study in anthropomorphism: Disney's "Robin Hood" Anthropomorphism is defined as the attribution of human characteristics to animals or non-living things, phenomena, material states and objects or abstract concepts.

Academy of Art Character and Creature Design Notes: A study in anthropomorphism: Disney's "Robin Hood"

Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

With such a broad definition one realizes that anthropomorphism covers characters as diverse as Osmosis Jones, Mickey Mouse, Hamm, Bagheera, Draco the dragon, and the Pixar luxo lamps. All are anthropomorphic characters, but in animation when one mentions an "anthropomorphic character", they usually mean a very specific type of animal character design.

The main source of light is the sun, whilst the blue sky supplies a second source of light with very different characteristics. Some light is also bouncing between the white base and the ball and supplies a third source of light. The brightest light is coming from the sun and is white light emanating from a small source, which causes it to cast sharp edged shadows. The light coming from the blue sky has a very strong colour cast which affects everything in this scene. Cartooning: Byrnes’ Complete Guide To Cartooning Part One.
