[Body Mechanics] MC Week 4 - Balance - Start 6.27/End 7.4

What to do: Animate a character balancing, such as on a tight rope, jumping across poles like on the AM Student Reels,  or something similar. You can take it one of two directions, they can lose their balance and fall, or they can almost lose but regain their balance just in time
Time Limit: 24 hours
Process: definitely keep this with blocking/blocking+, and focus on the poses. Pay special attention to the hips in particular, as that is a huge factor in determining how balanced someone is.
Hint: As before, try planning out your shot with simple stick figure poses, and let us see your thought process.

I would suggest adding some reversals in the spine, as it's mostly the same shape. You could very well pull it off as he reaches his feet slowly across the board or whatever it is. Regardless, lookin' good so far.

So I guess this one is not nearly as popular. Hopefully next week will be better.

Dance3d, I like the simple and clean poses in your planning and thank for coming up with the idea of the mini-challenge forum.

The participation for this week was not enough, I was thinking at least 5 people would submit their work.
I hope there will be more animations for the upcoming weeks.
I will be sticking to all of the mini challenges until the end of summer.
Just to improve myself.
