In this course, instructor Justin Harrison walks through the process of creating various animations commonly found within a game environment. Here he shows us how to create a walk cycle, run cycle, hit reaction animation, and a simple traversal animation while either animating from scratch, using reference, or a combination of both. The pre-rigged character is also available as part of the course for you to practice with! (Students - please look under Section 1 / Lecture 1 downloads for the character to use with the lesson.)
