I just realised that in this fast paced world we live in if we just take a small step back and slow things down how amazin the world around us really us and how much you get to learn thru observation alone.
For example just sit and observe the people walking on the street,see how they scamper from one place to another minding their own business asif they got blinkers on their face.No two people walk the same,so its interesting when you try to figure out their personalities based on their walks.Some people have a skip in their walk while some move their behinds more than they should.People who are walking with ease and in a slow pace have no hurry to get to their destination usually scan their enviornment as they walk.Some people just swing their hands a lot while some don't, a fat person usually .
Just observing them and looking at how they walk is in itself is some good learning.How the body weight shifts form one leg to another and how sometimes people trip and fall down..
In a way all this observation and other stuff like how birds and butterfly flaps its wings differently,how animals walk and run....is needed in animation since we animators are bring to life just 3d models on computers,giving them a voice and a soul.
