Dash Dashing animation run test



based off a quote from Miyazaki, I challenged myself to make a run cycle where there is always a foot on the ground. The idea/theory is it gives more weight to the run.

I think I need to sell the leg push on the ground more. Have a cleaner head movement and stylise that scarf a lot more.

I do like the antic though

I like the scarf, the pose are great, but it look like his striding along the ground instead of running...

I'm not sure if by mentioning the feet not leaving the ground it feels like striding. Like if I didn't mention it maybe it look ok. I dunno. Anyway it was a technique test, I think the best animation is done when you are working instinctual and are chasing what feels right.
