Bird walk cycle
Hi all,

Just a little walk cycle.

I wanted to create a bird like 'Creep', but it looks more like he's walking rather painfully on Hot coals.

What is the problem.

Critz please

Hey, Jim.

The way the legs move is perfectly fine, they feel quite birdy.
I think the problem with the walkcycle is with the head bobing up & down, however this would be based on the fact that I donīt know who this "Creep" bird is.
Perhaps you could try lowering a bit the force by which the head goes down. The wings could go up a bit also, they seem to be brooming the ground.

I hope this helps. See you around.

Hmm...i'm not an expert on this area but I would try to adjust the head bobing too. I think I'd make it less exaggerated and perhaps start it a bit earlier. Now it looks like it takes a step and then bob. The continuity of the movement breaks...dunno...just my $0.02.
