Planted Feet


I’m just getting into cut out style animation, and using the TBS template as a guide, I have worked out how to cut out and rig a character for animation.

One thing that’s bothering me though. How do I best animate a character who’s hips are swaying, but who’s feet are still, or planted.

I’m familiar with IK rigging in 3d applications, and understand how to use ‘planted’ feet to achieve this effect.

I’d be really interested to hear any ideas on elegantly achieving this effect with Toon Boom Studio’s more basic rigging. All my attempts so far have been long winded and less than satisfactory.
