This 8-session intermediate class will cover the animal anatomy and workflow in Autodesk Maya for photoreal creature animation using a jaguar rig. You will build poses and complete the spine motion as you create the walk cycle for the jaguar. Along the way you will learn about overlapping animation and animation layers to complete the walk and save it as a library action.
