Walking in the wind

This is my first animation with a character with a spine; At animation mentor they take it one step at a time; first a ball, then a ball with legs..and now a character without arms....slowly but surely I'll be working with a complete character, ha. Im happy to be learning the basics and getting a solid foundation though. Here's my ROUGH ROUGH blocking of my new assignment.

180 turn_FINAL!!!

Well, I turned in my refining, and it got ripped up...but my work was not up to par, so i deserved what I got. I took a step back to make sure that I concentrated on proper weight shifts in the hips, and that the feet are reacting properly to the shifts in weight in the hips. My goal in this animation was to have solid gravity in the steps, and to apply the principles of animation.
