Spring Quarter – Week 7

Allison and I have continued our work on the walk cycle. Allison has been working on setting up an IK rig for Paula to simplify the animation process and currently has a rough walk cycle. My own version is still in progress, the lower body is completed however the torso and upper body could use a little tweaking. The latest video is here.
This week we had a workshop with a mime at our large group meeting. We filmed multiple examples of different emotions, movements and demonstrating weight. Since a mime uses his or her whole body to communicate an idea we believe that the footage will prove useful in animating the body to communicate non-manual signals.
