About the Elephant Walk Cycle Course

elephant animation walk cycle

Enroll in the course:

Animating an elephant or any other realistic character requires a set of skills that get better as you learn from each character. Simulating muscles in a character or animation rig that doesn’t have a muscle system built into the rig, is no easy task, especially in a heavy quadruped character. In this video, i will share with you a simple trick i have learnt over the years as to how to go about using the rig to create the illusion of the underlying muscles.
