This walk is copied from the Richard Williams' Animator's Survival Kit. He copied it from Milt Kahl. I have been getting better at going through my own animation frame by frame and fixing mistakes, so this one should play very smoothly.

This weeks theme is to find a walk you like from some other animation, analyze it, and then animate your own version of with a different character. The point is to study how other animators create walks, not just to copy it frame by frame.

When I first started this, I didn't intend on doing anatomical detail; but halfway through, I thought it would be look cool. I wasn't sure if it would work. I am happy with the results. The lines boil a lot. That is not surprising, since this is only an exercise, I didn't put much effort into making them not boil

It's radio control, that's sort of mind control. I wanted to try to animate details since that is something I have had trouble with in previous weekly walks. I feel pretty successful in getting the details to animate without too much boil. I also wanted to try a more extreme perspective. There are some places where he pops. The Camera shake covers them nicely, but you can see it in the rough version. I did intended on the camera shake from the beginning. I didn't just add it to cover my mistakes. I could have spent more time fine tuning the motion and less on the details.

The Theme for this week's walk is a hypnotized walk. The Character's mind is somehow under the control of an outside force. The character can be whatever you want as long as it walks in a way that reveals that he/she/it is under mind control.

This week's theme is a dainty little girl walk. The walk should be feminine yet not seductive or sultry. This does not mean the character has to be a little girl. The character can be whatever you want as long as he/she prances around in a way that if a grown man did, he may receive politically incorrect comments regarding his lack of masculinity.

Here is my wizard walk for this week. He came out less wizardly then I would have liked. Also, I need to learn how to animate details in TVPaint. The single pixel pen may not have been the best choice since it boils like crazy. -John Guy
