Animation Time! - Krag Rig

Today's Inspiration:
One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant.  And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.

Ella Walk - Walk a Day

Today's Walk is an Ella Walk.
Head - light tilt side to side, mouth compresses and closes then flops back open
Chest - light puff out, turns and sways side to side with a little flop on the belly
Hips - rotate to offset the chest and allow for the next step, with a little overlap on the booty
Legs - low, medium-wide gait steps
Feet - drag back on the passing position, land with a little toe flop
Arms - held up, flop and wave frantically side to side
Hands - overlap and drag from the swing of the arms and forearms extending into the fingers and thumbs
