Squirrely Run Cycle - WIP

Squirrely Run Cycle - WIP from Matt Long on Vimeo.

Here's a work-in-progress playblast of a run cycle I've been doing in Maya. I initially started off animating it straight ahead, similar to how I approached the sack hop and soccer kid runs in 2D. It worked pretty well, just took some adjustments after. This was on 2's, now I'm inbetweening it on 1's while making changes and tweaks to it like delaying the individual parts more, fixing the tail so it actually works, and other such things. Stay tuned for more updates on this one.

Oh my gosh...all those moving parts! (Somehow it seems like a lot more work in 3d.) I'm a bit rusty on animation myself, but I like the tilt on the head as he runs as a little detail.

Thanks for your comment on my blog, btw! Unfortunately if I don't do some kind of deadline, I sorta forget I have a blog. So for now I'll consider it a weekly success if I hit 75% of my goal.
