I was assigned to do a happy walk cycle as part of the game assets required for the final reel. I was greatly inspired by the the Milt Kahl walk in one of my very favorite books, The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams. First two submissions included to show progression, as well as the final from the reel (minus the text). Rendering/Compositing was not required.
