Alex Williams, Head of Animation, explains the power of character walks, and how to take a basic walk cycle and completely change the character’s mood and personality.

For this exercise, we’ll be using the fabulous Monty rig created by Raveen Rajadorai, which you will be able to download for free during the webinar. You might think that you can’t get that much character and personality out of a simple rig like Monty – but you can! Also, Monty has no arms, which makes the process of making the walk cycle, and adapting it, much simpler.

During the demonstration, Alex will show you how to make Monty happy, sad, angry, or scared, masculine or feminine, and even turn him into a goose-stepping soldier! All with a basic walk cycle, and in just a few clicks.

It’s a great technique that breaks down apparently complex outcomes into simple, basic steps that any animator can master.
