The main thing I have been working on this weekend is a run cycle. This is my first attempt and although it is only a few steps I think it is quite convincing so far. I want to add to it now and maybe have a narrative with comedy, perhaps he can run into a wall or something like that. I will work on that over the next few days and storyboard the scene first.
I think the arms are a bit rigid but because he is moving so fast it does not seem to matter as much because you do not see it for too long. The run cycle is on 8 frames per step, so I may try it quicker and slower to get the right level of speed.
