Understanding the Mechanics of a Walkcycle

The first task is to draw a basic walk cycle  to understand the mechanics of it.
Simply enough, half of the period of the walk cycle ( the interval between one foot being raised up from the ground till it's again touching the ground) is constructed of main 5 poses:

By repeating those poses and  adding characteristics,  weight we get different walk types. The difference  should be evident in every  walk cycle. 

Also, please consider following my blog, full of creative visuals, CGI and reflective writings on film, animation and art theory.Cheers!
