Here’s a mood exchange walk exercise we had to do. Compared to the lifting exercise this one felt like a walk in the park. I tried to make things easier for me this time.. So I’ve simplified the character and tried not to divert myself from the main task: show two different ways of walking.
I found this really useful video online and used it as a reference for the first part of the walk. The second part I had a bit more trouble with (as you can see in the video above) but in the end, it was just a matter of being more stubborn than the animation (redraw redraw redraw!).
I also thought about doing it in after effects, but the walk was not going as fluid as I would like it to and the character was walking on the ice like Michael Jackson would moonwalk. So for speed/quality reasons I decided to do it hand drawn.
