Inspired by those Discovery channel songs about how the world is just awesome :D This will either brighten your day or give you a seizure...

This actually started as walk cycle homework for my animation class but I never posted it because I wanted to wait until I have time to add a background. Now that it's winter break, I'll have plenty of time to work on everything that I didn't get to over the semester :D

I used my roommate as reference for the pose. I drew every frame in Paint tool SAI
(18 frames for walk cycle plus 3 more layers of background) and then animated the backgrounds together in flash. There are 4 layers, the foreground, the walking figure, the midground, and the background.

Happy holidays!

Long Cat! :D

This girl reminds me of the protagonist from Animatrix - Beyond.

I also love your work of foreground with the background.
