In this course we will cover the process of creating a Walk Cycle in Maya. One step at a time, we'll break down the body mechanics of a walk. We'll learn the main positions that one goes through in a walk, we'll learn how to create seamless cycles and explore ways we can add convincing follow-through and weight. We'll even work with animation layers to produce a walk that is natural and has a little personality.
