36. shadow-dog walk

Harking back to the fantastical elements of previous walk, I did another exercise with the dogman walk cycle. The elements of fawn and satyr are also included here and it was a consolidation exercise. The legs with 'long feet' structure create an impression of a tiptoe walk as paws grasp the ground below. I've added a little curl to the in the immediate frame in order to accent this further. The legs are placed forward as they go up first unlike most common bi-pedal walks where they just go forwards preventing the fall. The body is hunched forward with strong bend in the spine at the push off point. Arms are swinging side to side in a wide arc coming level with the eyes as the figure advances.
