    Walking head movement

    Ok i can' really get the head movement while walking down. On other forums people are telling me that there should be more movement, there should be less movement, there shouldn't be any movement. My friend said come to here and ask so i am. I need to know how much more or less head movement i should have on my current walk.

    There needs to be some movement but not that much. They just say it needs head movement cause it looks weird when the rest of the bodys moving but the head is still in the middle of the screen. It looked like you moved alot all in 1 frame. let it take several frames to move so it don't look bouncy. lol i dont know if that helped or not.

    I think the problem isn't the head movement, but the arms and legs. The arms should be more straight, and also more flexible, like the bottom joint should swing a small amount when he moves them back and forth (not too much though or he'll look drunk)

    Same with the legs, they should be almost perfectly straight, except when he's moving the back lag to take another step, it should bend at the knee to lift up off the ground.

    It's getting better, just make the legs swing forward more when the stickman takes a step.

    i try when walking i find the striaghter the legs are the faster he is so if your going for fast walking use long straight legs for creeping bend the legs allot

    the walking was very good on the second onethe arms i thought didnt come out as far as they should have, they should mimic the legs movements (well that was what i was told)
    nice work ^_^

    Thats alot beter. Make sure the arms swing closer so it looks like they're swinging back and forther and not bouncing off each other inbetween.

    The 2nd one is much better. Here is a link to my style of walking, it might give you an idea of what walking should look like
