Key Frame Animation of Low Poly Character in Blender 2.9x

By Imphenzia

Learn how to easily key frame animate a low poly character in Blender 2.9x. This is the last in a series of three videos. In the first video we model the character. In the second video, we create an armature and rig this character. In this video, we keyframe animate an idle and a couple of run cycles.

Additional info:
I’ve been modeling in Blender since about 2015 but more recently in the past couple of years. I’ve been making games and assets in Unity since 2011 and I’m currently working on a multiplayer RTS game that I’ll be happy to announce later this year.

I use a Canon Lumix GH5 camera to record my videos with the Olympus 17mm F1.2 lens as well as the Laowa F2.0 7.5mm compact dreamer lens. Sometimes I also use a GoPro Hero 8, a Insta360 One X and a Sony rx100 mark vii. For audio I use a Rode NTG shotgun microphone connected to a RME Fireface UFX II sound card.

Thanks a lot for watching and sharing my videos 🙂
