Animation Tips and Tricks
Animate standing characters using unique postures
If you observe a throng of standing people in the subway, park, or other gathering place, you will notice that peoples postures constitute a unique element of their persona. A teenage girls hips may shift to one side as shes explaining a story, while someone else may slouch lazily with his arms folded, one hand holding a cigar. Whatever the case may be, people seldom stand perfectly upright. For this reason, animated characters that are standing should always do so in some distinctive manner and in a way that is appropriate for their other bodily actions, mood, or persona.
