Walk Cycle Animations (Digital or Hand Drawn)

I'm gonna put a step by step tutorial out for this as well, starting with digital methodology and then hand drawn. If choosing hand drawn, know that the exact points of each of the 8 frames of the cycle I'm going over are referenced in deeper detail during the digital walk through.

If you scroll down the page fast enough, the tutorial looks like a zootrope/ phenakistoscope. Anyway, nerd jargon. Look below.

Now for hand drawn.
















For reference, I have taught hand drawn animation in certain workshops for middle schoolers throughout Northern Nevada in my practice. Also, elementary students. The below video is a neat, stop motion / hand drawn animated leader I made for it.

After our discussion in class about nailing down to finer details what it is we're doing with our collab, I decided to post the updated visualization of our progress.
