step 2b. revised walk cycle. (almost done?)

here is a revised version of the cat walk. i think its getting there and starting to look a lot better ( actually debating whether its done or not ). thanks to everyone who has commented so far. your feedback has really helped me get it to where it is right now. special thanks to keelmy carlo and max garcia for giving me some pointers over the phone. feel free to leave comments. hope you like.

1. tweaked the up and down positions.
2. added the back arm.
3. reduced the wrist flick while adding more inbetweens.
4. added movement to the scarf.
5. animated the tail.

ps: does anyone know the code for play/stop buttons for flash? email me please at: skinnybonemedia [at]

step 2. walk cycle. (work in progress)

decided i should attempt a walk. the main goal is to have the walk feel a bit traditional while incorporating some flashy-ness to it. liking the way it's turning out so far but it's far from done. any input is appreciated. i'll post a revised version soon. thanks for stopping by as always.

1. add some movement on the scarf.
2. figure out the tail.
3. add the back arm.
4. minor tweaking.

p.s. thanks to the talented tom smo for helping me out with embedding flash files on blogger.

step 1. character turnaround.

here is a character turnaround of a character i would like to develop. the goal is to make an animated short one day. i think the next step is to make some model sheets of the character in various poses to get a feel of it's personality. once i do i will post them here. hope you dig.
p.s. changed my blog name from "ioblog" to "animployment." i never really liked the old name too much. when i started this thing i always wanted to name my blog something clever. with the state of the economy being the way it is and also working more and more as a freelancer, the new name makes more sense.
