Walk this WAAAYYYY


This exercise is designed to be an application of the information learned in Chapter 6 of the Animation Bootcamp course, specifically the Stomp Walk Cycle lessons. The assignment is to animate a believable and appealing walk cycle for the Stomp character. Since Stomp has no arms, this exercise should be a good introduction into animating character walks.


  1. Download the Stomp Walk Cycle: Source Files from the Downloads tab and open the unzipped .blend file with Blender.
  2. Animate a walk cycle for the Stomp character.
  3. Render your animation as an openGL viewport render loop. "Loop" means that the animation ends exactly how it begins so it can play seamlessly forever.
  4. Loop your animation 5 times and export as a video file.
  5. Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo.
  6. Finally, submit your exercise by clicking the Submit Exercise button in the top-right corner of this page and pasting your video's URL.
