This tutorial will cover animating your humanoid characters to have a realistic walk. It won't cover any of the modeling or rigging aspects. However if you download the tutorial model, this is all done for you.

This tutorial isn't intended to be definitive, but it will hopefully teach you the basics of how to set up a simple but authentic looking walk cycle.
