This is my basic 4-legged walk cycle and my 4-legged run cycle combined. The point of the assignment was to learn how to export/import cycles in Maya, make a trasition from one cycle to another (and to a halt), and discover the benefits of Animation Layers. I think the physical aspects of the animation are OK considering how toony the rig is, and I think the small acting works surprsingly well considering that none of it was planned out.

This is Daisy the Cow walking on a treadmill. It was great fun to create this cycle and translating all of our real life reference videos and anatomy lectures to a rig this toony was very exciting. She does walk in space just as nicely as she does on this clunky treadmill and I will prove it once I combine this cycle with a runcycle and some acting. Stay tuned...
