9. Anim Analysis Series – Feet Squish for Weight
Humans and animals have legs and feet to help with such movement as running, walking and jumping. All these dynamic moves involve transference of energy from acceleration to slowing down. They absorb energy from weight being pushed down into the ground. In animation we need to present this information to help sell believable weight to viewers.
