Here is my walking cycle animation:
Overall, I am quite pleased with the end results. I’ve never done any animating like this before so like with the previous tasks, I knew that this would be quite challenging, but with the help of a tutorial and with my knowledge of After Effects that I gained from the previous 3 tasks I managed to create the walking cycle.
To give the walking cycle a realistic appearance, I made sure that the arms moved in opposition to the legs and that the whole body moved up and down throughout.
Here’s a couple of screenshots I took during the process. The first image is where I created my basic character for the walking cycle using Adobe Illustrator. The second image is showing me altering the rotation of one of the legs:
