Last Minute Warm-ups!

Getting into the really gritty bits of animating my final so I decided to take a break and do something fun and quick in photoshop.  Just a basic walk-cycle for practice since Pollo’s anatomy is so wacky!

This time I used the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and really wanted to keep it simple while emphasizing shapes and body types. I like the result but critiques are more than welcome!

Here’s a little look-see into the process!
