Once you have know how to Animate a Walk sequence, the next step is to learn how to animate a run. While similar to a walk, animating a run has it’s own challenges. John Pomeroy takes you through the steps to animate a run in this online course.
John Pomeroy, animator and directing animator, has animated, supervised or directed many beloved characters including Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit & Christopher Robin in “Winnie-the-Pooh & Tigger Too”, Feivel in “An American Tail”, Littlefoot in “The Land Before Time”, “The Firebird” in “Fantasia 2000” and many others.
John begins the lessons by talking about animation principles, references and shows a sequence he had done for the video game Space Ace. In the first lesson, he demonstrates creating a run sequence and describes the assignment. In the final lesson, John shows the results of his run sequence and how different timing impacts.
It is highly recommended that you complete Animate a Walk before beginning Animate a Run.
