New walk cycles

Had a meeting last week with an industry insider who was kind enough to look over my reel. Like David Hamblin at Sony, Neil said I should work on some walks as this would be one of the most likely jobs to get started on if I get that first post, and to whack on five or six on my showreel.

I've tried to tone down my naturally cartoony style, but when you're using a rig like alfred it's quite hard. So anyhow here they are.

good to see you been practising.
i could feel the walks, it´s a good start, pay attentions on the pelvis rotations, also on the weight, alfred is light so make it light, fast up, hold up, slow dow...it really takes time to do this walks.
check also the translations side ways.
