42. pendulum scoop


video

Going back to the simple walk cycles I wanted to add another layer to otherwise normal walk. I added a strong swing from left to right on the push off step, giving a body a pendulum swing forward. 

In order for this walk to function I had to lower the low key frame adding an scooping in-between allowing the body to have momentum in order to swing backwards. 


The foot is dragged across the floor in order to provide additional stability to such an action and the forward step is at an onward angle giving a drag gin power to the body at hand. The arms are used to balance the figure during the option and the head is loose with neck holding it anchored to the chest as the figures centre changes with the swing forward creating a sickle arc.
