Students studied walk cycles in animation and discussed how the way a character walks can indicate mood and other characteristics. We scanned through the articled on animation and walk cycles before students started work on their own walk cycles. Once they completed the key frames they then inserted them into a movie clip symbol and pulled out multiple versions of the character walking.

Some of the students accompanied the walk cycles with animals walks like dogs, bunnies and horses.  Others drew landscapes to accompany the walks.

The following article is worth reading.
