The CartoonSmart Video Tutorial Library keeps growing!
This new lesson teaches various techniques for animating walk or run cycles in Toon Boom Animate. These videos assume you already know the basics of character rigging, but if not the source files provided include 3 pre-rigged characters to begin animating with. So you’ll get an unanimated and completed character file for the Side View Walk Cycle, Front 3/4 View Walk Cycle, and Side View Run Cycle (6 files total). These source files alone are a valuable resource as the character art can be modified without affecting the completed cycles.
Each tutorial video is around 30 Minutes in length (87 min total).
