40. mountain dwarf

Continuing with a short and compact body figure, today I worked on a dwarf walk cycle. Using a stereotype of a mountain jolly miner the body is a bit smother and less angular than the swagger of last week. The motion is of a character who is accustomed to walking on the incline, hence there is a slight back lean into the forward step. The arms are swinging upwards without a twist in the elbow and lightly relaxing before arcing downwards. Altogether this gives the figure a happier motion and adds enthusiasm in the walk.
