Class 1 Week 8: Cycles, oh cycles....

Strong
This is the "Vanilla Walk" blocking.  It's your essential walkcycle, which is actually something I've done for work before.  It's harder than it looks to do a basic walk with no personality - really tempting to add in little personality movements.  But this assignment was about the body mechanics.  It's just a blocking pass, so we lay in the essential key poses and get the timing down.  Next week will be all about smoothing it out.

The Pose this week is to convey Strength.  After doing the walkcycle homework, it was a relief to have arms to work with again.
