I spent my three hours in the media lab today making this chap here. I’m quite pleased with him but apon re-watching it, I’ve discovered that he appears to be only hopping on the spot. He doesn’t actually push off the ground in any direction.
I’ll have to make him push off in a forward direction on my next go at doing this, but overall, I think the movement is comical and believable. However, Helen thinks I should probably make more of a squash when he hits the ground so I’ll take that into account when I have another go.
