I have now sent my test animation to Sarah and I feel fairly pleased with it.
As I have spent quite a lot of time using one of the gnome models, I feel that I would be better when I next use one of them. I really like the character and am looking forward to doing more work with him.
There are some other things that I would have liked to include in the animation. One of them would be more follow through.
In hindsight maybe it would have been better to have concentrated on a smaller number of movements and tried to perfect these.
