Create an Animatic

This tutorial will take you through all the necessary steps to create an animated scene that focuses on an essential animation technique: the walk cycle. You'll create the material for this piece using a hand-drawn sketch of a character already scanned in and cut out in Photoshop, then bring the result to life with the help of a QuickTime movie of a Poser animation.

Note that such a complex animation would be an arduous process without such a reference materials, which prove valuable when your budget is limited and time is pressing. As usual, all the relevant files are provided.
