Request:Create an animation with the different stages of children ( baby, toddler, 5-year old, and 10 year old). Each child at different stages will walk behind an object and then ” grow” to the next stage. Baby crawling then moves behind bear and is a toddler. Toddler walking and then moves behind abc blocks and turns in to 5 year old. 5 year old walks and then moves behind “bush, tree, …?” and turns into 10 year old. 10 year old starts off walking and notices a little girl waiting for him and they both run off to play ground.

First found references for drawing baby’s and toddlers. Tend to be more rounder with bigger heads.
My Character Design:
Progress So Far:
My role is to create the animations and I am collaborating with out fellow STA Anna who will be creating the props that the character moves behind.
I think you can tell by the fluidity of each of the animations that there was a point when I got used to the movement. The baby is a bit glitchy and then the walk cycle of the toddler is a bit smoother but the arms are a bit strange. By the third walk cycle of the toddler I feel like I got a hand of it and by the 10 year old I was satisfied with the animation and moved onto completing the color. Might need to change the colors a bit since it differed from the ones on my computer screen.
