this walk cycle test is actually a loop! i just animated 2 steps, and tried to match up the last frame of his last step to the first frame of the first step. there's this little feature in dragon software that let's you put a guide image behind your current frame.
i just keyed out the green and put a flat grey background for the test. i had to do a loop because i'm not sure how long his ankles will hold out. they're already weakened quite a bit.
next time i have to build a puppet, i will definitely be doing the mold+silicon cast thing. sculpey is so heavy.
