32. female hip walk

Though most of the figures up to now haven't been gender specific, I noticed that there is a leaning towards classic masculine representations. I wanted to counterbalance this with study of a idiosyncratic feminine elements in the walk cycle. There are small differences. One of the main ones is in the head position, the head is usually on a tighter eight loop and does not bob up and down as much. The movement here starts from the hip following  a lazily placement of the shins and a crawl of the foot. There is still shoulder swing to counteract the walk but its has a delay and is not a lead. There is also more soft tissue in the breast which will affect the balance of the figure and it's lower back placement in the walk. I think I'll have to practise a few of these in order to understand the body movements.
