I wanted to do some research into previously animated jump cycles. This could also help with reference later on. I also wanted to know the best way too create this jump i.e. on the spot or forward.
I really liked Andrew Coyle’s jump on the spot- almost like a gaming move.

Alec showed us the jump below. I really like the personality demonstrated in the heavy head- giving a bit of humour to the every day move.
I found the addition of weight in this rather nice. (YouTube, 2016).
I originally thought I could give a dramatic sequence to the jump but due to the struggle I had with the initial walk cycle, I realised the difficulties in this for me. I also really liked this as it gave the breakdown for how the jump was created. (YouTube,2016).
I really liked the over exaggerated secondary motions above, I also found the removal of the arms great as it let me focus on them, and the body movement along. The second, as mentioned previously, being something I struggle with identifying. (YouTube, 2016).
