Walk cycle tutorial – Part 1

Hi everybody!
We’ve decided to share this short walk cycle tutorial with you, in hope that some of you will find it useful.
It took us some time to develop this walk cycle, and giving the fact that non of us has ever learned animation I think we did a decent job.

So let’s cut to the chase:
Here are the seven basic frames you’ll need in order to animate the walk cycle shown above:

Walk cycle - animation

Walk cycle - animation

We will deal with the front and back walk cycles in the near future.
Until then, please let us know if you have any special requests for tutorials.

Cheers!

  • With what program do you draw the characters and do you use a special touch pad

    • I used Illustrator to draw that character.
      I do have graphic pen, but I use it mostly for coloring and backgrounds drawings.

  • It’s really done quite well. I can’t even do something like making a scrible move on a blocknote, ahhh~ I really love your games. I can’t wait until the games come out.

  • Laihuaqing

  • Jerry

    Thanks for sharing your know-how!
    I always wondered what’s behind making a game and what you have to do. Its obvious that you have invested a lot of time and efforts in your gfx! That’s one thing that makes your games so special!

    One funny observation for me is the position of the left foot in the third sequence of the motion. I’d expect to see the character lying on the floor in the fourth sequence but somehow it seems to work 😉

    I’d be very intersted in a high-level tutorial what are the elements how to come form the game concept to having a final flash game. I know this could be business-sensitive info but maybe you can give a very brief overview.
    Thanks!

      Hi Jerry, it was enjoying reading your feedback. You have a good observation regarding the 3rd frame in the walk cycle.
      It does look like it exceeds from the sequence, but when it’s being played fast in Flash it all connects well.
      About a week ago we mentioned that we are starting to work on the “Baron Game” project, which will take a very long time to develop (don’t worry, we will continue to publish other games in between). We will accompany the project with posts explaining the whole way of creating a game’s concept from A to Z. We hope that you’ll find it interesting.

        Looking forward to the Baron Game! That’s the one playing in the gold rush time, right?
        Maybe you can collect all your game background infos and tutorials in a seperate section of your web site?
