Here I have continued practicing with 3DS Max, I decided to make a run cycle for the previous model, to do this I linked the different parts of the legs in a parent-child format. Unfortunately from what I can tell uploading animations to Sketchfab is limited to a closed beta, so I have uploaded a video instead. Animating this took me about the same time as the model took to make, about an hour and a half. I am pleased with the result of the animation, though it could be improved by the head not being static. As a side-note I recommend viewing the video at 1.5X or 2X speed as it makes the animation seem smoother.
