Fiona Struts Her Stuff



The model looks nice but a little weird (especially the feet, digits on hands but not feet? and it is like she is walking in heels, but isn't in heels). However the movement is more my concern for focus. The right arm path isn't natural nor correct, so it is colliding with her hip causing it to jitter and snap back into the path when it is behind of her; the left hand is fine. The shoulders aren't moving in a manner that complements each other, so it seems uneven. The legs should be moving with a slightly curved path, this might also correct that the left leg also jitters due to colliding with the right leg. The hip swing looks more like you tilted and slid the hips to create the effect, which isn't natural.

Hip swing exists in both males in females, but it is more prominent in females due to how they are made and the movement that it forces the legs to move in. It is hard to describe the movement without both a male and female pelvis to show, but I will try. When the leg moves forward, the legs are drawn towards each other, this causes the feet to slightly overlap in their path. As the leg goes back, it pushes the pelvis up when directly down (there is a bit of "bounce" in the entire movement) but the leg is directed outward (which is why at the start of a hard run, the runners path zig zags), however due to the course of the walk and foot placement staying true, the hip is pushed back and rotates slightly (yes, this is also part of why the feet's path crosses). So the feet don't trip over each other, they move in a curved path. All of this creates the hip swing. It can be emphasized by shortening how far back the foot goes so the leg can push the hip up and also a slight lowering of the body forcing the leg to push the hip up more, or even having the feet's path overlap each other more so (like models do, and it does look forced, even when they do it). The tail swing stops too harshly, now, I not going to say that she can't hold the tail more to one side, but if the movement is due to the lower back movement from the walk, it would be a bit more balanced between the sides.

A female pelvis is angled more inward towards the front, and a male pelvis has more of a straight path. Here is a video that shows the differences https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1Qm7d4cCt8, and you can find a lot of videos that cover walking in natural, forced, and unnatural manners.

Great work
