View Full Version : Character animation two boys

Hello Guys,

I need some help. After watching the playblast about thousand times I'm not sure about movement and timing of this shot. This are my first animations.
Please give me some tips, thank you

In the Two Boys clip there are a lot of instances of "isolated motion" which is when some body part moves and the body part it is connected to remains motionless.

This is usually unrealistic looking.

For example the boy nods his head fast but his shoulders remain locked in space. The mass of his head swinging would have to move his shoulders some.

Or, he bends his torso forward but his hips remain stationary. the hips would have to move back to counter balance the weight of the head and torso going forward.
