Walk Cycle Update:
Today I finished with some additional modifications to the walk such as animating the tail and provide a facial expression. Also, I do a pass on the back legs to be sure that the arc is well spaced.
I will upload the animation to social media to ask for feedback but I'm feeling that I can finish with the walk cycle very soon and include the walk cycle and the run cycle to my demo reel (to have quadruped animation on my reel for now) and continue working on the sequence on my free time.
So the next step will be polish the little things of the walk cycle and ask for feedback for the run cycle (I would say that my deadline to stop tweaking things will be until Day 51). Address the notes on my spare time, and finally start doing the transition from walk to run in one maya file by combining both animations into one scene.
