11. heavy set, small step rush

video

This time I wanted to introduce more weight to my character, and how that extra 'baggage' would affect the movement. 

I was doing a similar movement as previous two with a minimal frames (8) concentrating on getting the poses expressive and strong keys. The steps are small but heel based as the character seems o be rushing, to give more of a sense of urgency his head is trying to go forward, but due to his weight it's mostly going up in order to provide counterbalance to his body. His arms are a lot straighter on the downswing creating a counterweight to the belly wobble. 

The weightiness is further emphasised by a bigger bend in the knees in the small steps. 
Tomorrow I'll slow things down.
