Creature - Animation Time!

Today's Animation Time features the Creature Rig.
Head - focused forward, light tilt and sway side to side, with extra jaw drag and flop
Chest - crouched down and bent over, light raise and twist to allow for the next arm movement
Hips - rotate to offset the chest and allow for the next step
Legs - low, small, wide gaited steps
Feet - drag back on the passing position, land with extra flop on the toes
Arms - propel the movement forward, medium small movements
Hands - press against the ground, drag back on the passing position, land with a little compression in the fingers
