Animating A Floursack Walk Cycle - PROJECT FILE 👨💻
Get direct access to this animation's project file and discover exactly how it's been made. Access to animation project files enables you to get under the hood and pull the animation apart frame-by-frame. They're a fantastic way to contract years of animation knowledge and essentially look over the shoulder of the animator to learn their secrets!
This is a great exercise to start learning about walk cycles that have personality. The flour sack is a classic tool for learning animation because it forces you to act with the body. Learning how to get a primitive, expressionless 'sack' moving with weight and character and personality is the foundation for all great character animation. You may also be interested in the floursack jump project file.
In this download, not only do you get access to the project file, but I've also added some key annotations and notes to further illuminate my thought process. These can be found within the project file in the notes panel in the timeline (Premium only)
Project files are little gems and I try and get my hands on as many as I can find! 💎
About Me 👋
Over the course of 6 years, I had the privilege to work as part of a BAFTA award-winning team, working with most of today's major children's TV brands including Disney, Nickelodeon, CBBC CBeebies, Boomerang and Sesame Workshop. Certainly one of the highlights of my career was creating the characters for one of the UK's best-loved children's TV shows Tee & Mo. I'm now a senior web developer, so I have nothing to hide. Becoming a proficient character designer and animator is a lifelong journey like any art. And while I have lots to learn I also have lots to share. These resources aim to share everything I learned as a professional character designer and animator.
