Artlover - Animation Time!

Today's Animation Time features the Artlover Rig.
Head - tilted upward with a minimal bounce and drag
Chest - puffed outward light up and down
Hips - rotate to offset the chest and allow for the next step
Legs - low very straight legged steps
Feet - overshoot the contact position drag with a little flip up and overlap in the toes
Arms - perched behind the back light keep alive and follow the movement of the hips
Hands - pressed against the lower back light keep alive and move to stay in place with the hips
