In this scene, the lady wakes up in the carriage to find that the train has reached its destination. This sequence of tests is designed to practice how the character's expressions and bodies work together.

The first clip was my initial attempt (Picture1). The ups and downs of the character's body showed her immersed in a beautiful dream, and then the movement transitioned to her waking up from the dream. My idea of the character's action was from the character looking up and opening her eyes to looking out the window and finding the train had stopped. No additional actions were added to the process. I found this a little monotones, so in sequence 2 (Picture2 ), I added the action of looking around and getting up to get out of the bus. Further, in sequence 3 (Picture3), I assumed that maybe the reason the woman woke up was due to the bus's brakes, so I redesigned a character to fall forward. From the tests I found that the third test is the most natural and reasonable, so I optimized the angle of the body to fall forward in the fourth iteration (Picture4), making the whole movement more gentle, it looks like a brake The resulting body leans naturally, rather than the sharp leaning caused by the impact.
