Walk Cycles


Walking Female from Douglas Meloche on Vimeo.
This is the first successful walk cycle I produced. One thing I love about this is the fact that no matter how many times you do walk cycles there’s always a way to make it better. The toughest part is knowing when you’ve done all you can to a specific drawing and it’s time to move on to the next step.

Here I improved on the original drawings after completing the female walk. I needed to give the figure a more forceful step to show the more deliberate, male movement.


Walking Light from Douglas Meloche on Vimeo.
This is the most rewarding walk cycle I’ve executed so far.
I began sketching this animation by asking myself, “What causes someone to have a very light step?” Without even realizing it, I was beginning the steps of creating personality animation.
I was thinking about what motivated a very light walk, and how the body would move to create this gesture. It was remarkable to finally see exactly what I imagined come to life in this little figure.
