Roman Soldier - Turn Around and Walk Cycle

While working on the 30 minute film we are also creating some short films staring the same host characters. These shorts won't focus on "Mankind's Endeavor Into Space" but will give short bytes of information from history, science, literature, etc. One segment calls for an Ancient Roman Army. Here's the beginning tests for it.
This is a basic turn around sketch. There are a few problems with the alignment of certain parts, but it's just to test out the look of the character.


This is a walk cycle created with Flash. I guess I should call it a "march cycle" instead. 

Roman Marching Walk Cycle #2

By the way, the title of this short will be "The Earth's Greatest Army Conquered by Half-Naked Snowboarders". It should be fun.
