Today i integrated the simplicity of a straight forward movement with minimal adjustments in order to achieve more character. I used a stereotypical cartoon character shape with a over-sized head in order to work on the balance of the body and overall connection.
In order to achieve a self gratifying swagger in the character subtle movement of the hips and shoulders in contrasting direction was added, keeping the whole figure more volumetric. This hourglass movement add to the figures propulsion and a large head adds a further challenge of overall balance. In order to portray certainty in the character the step is wide with a forwards sink on the knee and the arms go to chin level, elbow leading.
