I had an absolute blast animating the avatar character I posted last week, which is why I jumped at the chance when they asked me to do another one!
One of the most enjoyable aspects of working with these characters is the creative freedom to animate almost anything I want. In both cases I was given a prop to work with and was told "make something cool". Of course I had to stay within the style created for these characters, but outside of that it was free reign. In this case I was handed a boom box prop to coincide with the release of Band Hero. Naturally the only thing I could think of was to have the Avatar break dance. This prop and animation is available today on the Xbox marketplace.
