What you'll learn

This course contains 6 lessons and it's around 10 hours long. The main highlights you'll learn are...

  • Learn the main poses for any animated walking cycle. These poses or so called Key Poses or Golden Poses are the foundation for any body mechanics work that you may want to do in the future.

  • Get tips and tricks to reference your work and understand how to study reality using different tools and methods. Animation is the art of imitating the real world so planning is an essential part of the process.
