Skipping Away

Skipping Away - student project

I started by drawing a relatively tame walking stance, next I exaggerated the stance to emphasis the forward movement. I decided to go with a skipping style of walk to make the character lighter feeling.

The lines got away from the original sketch that ended up making the character look too blocky.

Here is the fully coloured character, I think the body could have been bent a but further back with the forward leg projecting further. The closer arm could also be closer to the centre of the character but it does add to the sense of twist of the two pivot point.
