Ooh, nice. Now we need to work on a zombie walk.
I made a zombie clip a while ago. To give the ‘lurching’ look, I took about four frames of the zombie lifting its leg, then in the next frame it would be down on the next stud, with the body bent over. Then in the next four frames it would straighten up and lift its leg and repeat the process. I can’t get a link to the clip right now, but I might make a zombie walk tutorial…August 25, 2008 at 11:21 pm #399727
Zombie walk? No problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCcXtE6qIP4
Read the description for more details about it.August 26, 2008 at 6:39 am #399730August 31, 2008 at 1:12 am #399896
Wow. That’s incredible! It doesn’t look like lurching much, but it’s great!
Really? Thanks! For those who didn’t read the description, one step took roughly 20 fps. Yikes. It’s really hard to animate just two walking on a sidewalk, because it is highly likely that you’ll either miss a few frames, or knock one of them over. I just scored a major deal; I found a bunch of road baseplates hiding in my basement (Note: I checked ’em on Peeron.com, they are from THE 80s.) So maybe I’ll animate only one on the sidewalk and a few on the road.August 31, 2008 at 10:06 pm #399918
I think that the steps in the cycle were a little too large. I think that the zombies should have normal sized, but jerky steps. We should try something simple to animate, so that we can animate more zombies. I might try to post a zombie walk cycle soon.
EDIT: I have made a zombie walk cycle.

Well, I just checked the BiM forums, and NOTHING has happened there since July. What’s going on? Where is benjimonji? I know he’s still lurking around on the internet, because he sends me videos from YouTube, so I’ll send him a message later on when I have more time after practicing my instrument for the school band. Anyways, here’s the last thing posted from BiM…

Aliens have landed on Earth and openly announced their plan to enslave the Human race. Due to this people go mad as they await their fate. Only the animators, who were working on Moving-Brick-Movies (lets emphasize that) are safe. The aliens announced that the humans have 24 hours left to be free. Those 24 hrs happened to be THAC, which kept the animators unaware of their planets fate.
The only ones still sane, the animators form band together for survival.
Creative, but hmm …
I’ll add it, but what about people who aren’t familier with THAC or brickfilms politics?
