This was animated by Stephanie Blakey for a school assignment.

Test animation done for Teddy Newton's short "Day & Night" .

Franquin Walk Cycle

"My Bunny Lies over the Sea" walks

Two funny walks from "My Bunny Lies over the Sea".

First , a walk cycle of McCroary playing the bagpipes. (nice animated ground plane effect on this) -




Next, Bugs impersonates an elderly Scotsman neighbor of McCroary's . Check out the great "stagger" tremble on the knees and the arms.



I've looped it several times longer than it appears in the actual film, so the Background jumps back to the beginning which makes for a slightly disconcerting "pop" at that point , but the cycle works fine if you just keep your eyes on Bugs , not the BG. (unfortunately the only clip I could find of this has the subtitles partially obscuring Bugs' legs)

Jessica Rabbit walk from "Tummy Trouble"



Jessica Rabbit walk from "Tummy Trouble", animated by Roger Chiasson.  I've looped it so it cycles, but the BG jumps each time it starts over , but other than that little jump this works ok as a cycle to study.



Image quality isn't great on this clip, but the best I have for now. I'll try to replace it with a better quality grab.

Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear by Eric Larson

Creative walks on Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear animated by Eric Larson for Disney's "Song of the South".

(larger file, so give it time to load up)



(old VHS tape so the color's not very good. But the beautiful movement of the animation still shines through.)

Tweety walk

Great stylized walk/waddle on Tweety from "A Tale of Two Kitties" .

Nice bouncy walk cycle of "Jupiter" the dog animated by Larry Whitaker. Used for the Digicel Flipbook demos.

Rough Walk Cycle

I'm told this is a rough demo of a walk that Jason Ryan animated.

The Blob walk cycle by Steve Gordon

Tissa David and Phil Duncan walk cycles for Hubley films

Two different walk cycles , done for two different films directed by John Hubley. These originally appeared on Michael Sporn's wonderful blog . (if you don't have it bookmarked go visit there right now and bookmark it . Michael is running a blog which is a combination animation history/animation technique university course , conducted via blogging.  Michael is a font of valuable information about the art and craft of animation. )

This first walk is from the Hubley-directed "Upkeep" ,  animated by Tissa David:





And this walk by Phil Duncan , from Hubley's "Of Men and Demons" --




Here's another Tissa David walk , of an old villager from R.O. Blechman's "The Soldier's Tale"
