MC 32: Waiting in line...

Yes, that's right! A new challenge already!
Since the last challenge didn't go too well (or rather, not at all), I thought I might try something considerably simpler.

Since we spend much time of our lives waiting for something, I thought how about animating this instead of doing it? Should be a lot more fun :-)

You could have, for example, someone waiting in the train ticket queue since 1 hour and being bored to death, or have someone waiting in line for a ticket to the most exciting rock concert ever, and the impending doom of a sold out show is ever looming above her head.
Maybe you have someone waiting for his date to arrive, and all the excitement and novelty of this (first?) encounter makes him completely giddy, nervous and anxious?
But you can also go at this from a more games orientated pov, like animating an idle cycle, or the cycle you have after you leave your character standing around for too long? Here would be important to avoid too much and too little movement, and maybe try to stay away from cliche things like scratching the bum or picking the nose. Although, if it fits the character, why not?

And, if you're not too comfy with character animation yet, this can also be done sith some simpler objects, like Pixo the lamp, for example!

I'd set the deadline to Monday, July 2nd, and as always, try to keep the video length to 75-125 frames, here's the link to how to use the dropbox, please try and keep the videos below 10 MB, and if any more questions arise, Steve did a nice FAQ here.

Now have fun!
