Lock Walk Rough by beastofoblivion Lock Walk Rough by beastofoblivion

Procrastinating on packing the other day and did a few Lock walk keyframes.  Lots to fix.  I'd like to add a trot, run, and sprint then bring it back to a walk.  Then paint it up.  

Quad Locks walk kind of strangely, with their somewhat improbably long bodies.  It’s kind of like a swaying, slightly jarring stalk-walk in my head.  It’s typical that they walk around with their heads twisted to the side, when something catches their interest but it’s not enough to make them go over and actually check it out.  So they circle, or walk by, and stare.  

So here we have Ary padding on by, briefly acknowledging that you exist and that you’re mildly interesting before he turns to go about his business.

Awesome, no problem.

All you need to do when you do look it up is skip past the intro, where it sounds like Megatron or some robotic villan is taing and ends saying fire, youll hear the portion after it that clicks instantly as some sort of swag walk theme.

I agree with an earlier post--with a long, flexible back like this creature has, a cheetah would be the best model for stride and run. I think for this creature, there might be more sway/swagger in the shoulder blades. It's a neat creature, and I think you've got the motion pretty close, though!
