This character has absurdly stretchy legs and a dainty disposition. The latter trait is strange, considering he smacks his face straight into the ground with every step. Maybe he's learned to cushion the fall with his well-kept moustache.

I am uncertain about some color and shading choices, and the scrolling floor, so I'd be glad for advice from expert eyes. Still, I'm proud of my silly-walker; he was fun to make.

I can honestly say this is the best walking animation I've ever seen.

Absurd! But that's what I love. =]

I think the slight pause at the height of each step, along with the hat bounce, is the perfect touch.

I think you should have come first mainly cos this is just so incredibly silly.  Good work.

 haha that's brilliant.

The only problem I see with it is that when he rises back up after smacking his face against the ground, his foot is not in front of him enough for it to propel him up without launching him forward. If his foot leads him by a bit before his leg stretches out, it may look a little more ...correct? 

Anyway great job

Very funny, perfect entry.


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/18/2009 20:14

Wow, I love this. Full of character.

A vote for sure.

I think the scrolling ground is a grea idea to show movement, without him actually going anywhere.

Looking forward to more from you.
