Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding lower body poses, part of Learning Character Animation.
…At this point we have two basic steps blocked out.…So, I've got one, two poses and then one at the beginning that start the walk.…So, now let's go ahead and start filling in some of the…blanks here in this walk and try and get the lower body finished.…So the first thing I want to do is let's just go ahead and take a look at this.…Well, at frame nine here which is…halfway through the first step, you'll see that the right foot is passing the left.…
And this is where we have what's called the passing pose.…And so what we can do is we can lift…up the hips and the foot to allow that to happen.…So at this point the hips are going to be at their highest…point, so I'm going to go ahead and grab those and move them up.…Pretty much vertical.…I don't…want to over extend the feet like that, but I want to give a nice natural bend.…So, something about like that.…And, then I'm going to go ahead and set a key for those hips.…So, now when I scrub, you can see how the hips kind of go up and down.…
