Walk Cycle Tut

I found this site to be useful in informing the basic points of a walk cycle. Although Matt told us about this and this is the method he’s taught us, I wanted to know more about why this method is productive. This is also useful for 2D animation as well as 3D animation.

For me it useful to know the principle of this method but working with an alien that has one foot/stem has proven difficult. With two legs the animation of a walk cycle is more believable but animating the flower alien hopping looks like its swinging forward and backward. The tangent handles on the graph editor don’t seem to be moving to make certain parts of the movement more drastic so I will see what is possible with the animation I have so far.
