Sketching Movement

Playing with the movement of the next set of bugs living in your bodies…How do their limbs move when climbing, lifting, running? What’s the radius for their arms and legs? How much can their torso twist and bend? When I focus on a specific moving activity, I always go back to real life models. Looking at a concrete model helps to ground my characters realistically. I want the angles to look natural, and cohesive, not off-putting or awkward to the eye. Once I have the realism down, then I can play around, and see how far I can bend an elbow joint or a leg joint without going too far off the deep end.

Time for some fun…
