Experimenting with character animation

What do you want your character to do in this environment? Is she taking a nice leisurely stroll through the countryside? Perhaps, a monster is chasing our protagonist? Maybe he's hauling a huge seed, which he will bury to grow a large plant that leads to a new and exciting world? It may not seem like it, but your possibilities, even with just one character and a scene, are virtually endless. What's important is that you now have the know-how to create what you want. We learned about bone animation, actions, keyframes, and all the tools. You just need to learn how to execute what you want or what your script calls for.

This section will outline some basic animations you could use in your own works. The goal here is to take these small elements and apply them to a larger project.
