This project is to start the animation process and learn from your mistakes and experience you will gain from this simple project. Once you are confident move on to the second project.

2. Create a character front walk cycle. In our main animation lesson, I have shown hot to create a character front walk cycle, once you are confident and ready, recreate the same walk cycle in your own style, make the animation more exaggerated and fun. 

Practice regularly to make the animation more perfect. Once you complete any of the projects share it in the projects section.
