Gizmo Walk & Run Cycle Tests


Edgar Tadeo shares this series of walk cycle test of a little toy soldier. What I liked about it is that he shares each step in the creative process of figuring out how to have it walk properly. That, and the cheesy music :)

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. That takes me way back. I use to watch Superbook and it would always make me want to build my own Gizmo. I always thought his nose was blue, though. Or was that the robot from Flying House?
