Character Design: Mechanism example (Henry)
Henry is the main protagonist and therefore must have a mechanism that makes him standout from the others to portray this. So in light of this I have chosen to make henry an extremely bouncy and enthusiastic character through his movement.
This also ties in with his character design as the pilot hat he wears is symbolic of flight and being in the air so its only right that his mechanisms and movement depict this. Also the hat makes him appear somewhat young and childish so the very hyperactive feel to his movement makes sense.
