((OOC: DID SOMEONE SAY EAGLES?!?!?!?! Here’s Rowena Ravenclaw with her white tailed eagle that may or may not be magical and golden and slightly inspired by marahute *cough cough* I have a thing for witches with affinities for birds. Birds to do bidding, birds to be friends with, birds that nip your fingers lovingly, birds that are completely terrified of your newest sleeping death potion. Caw caw mother cluckers))
Glen Keane always talks about animating with sincerity. When animating a character you need to understand him/her fully, predict their reactions, their feelings and foresee the way they will move, staying true to themselves.
Marahute moves like a magnificent eagle, and not like a human, but Glen gave her a relatable characteristic. He allowed us to be able to read as clearly as if she were speaking, what she’s saying or thinking.
I love these suble little movements that made her majestic, comedic and real!
