Thing a Week 1: Hand-Drawn Walk Cycle

Well, it's been a week, and I think I came through. My goal was to produce at least one hand-drawn walk cycle. I haven't done one since college, and back then they weren't great. I'm pretty happy with my first two attempts. First, I did a standard walk cycle. I'm...
