This is the image. I watched some tutorials etc. but always found walking animations. Is it possible?

Or maybe you can advise me another method if it is not possible?

It is the first time i am using Duik.

It should be doable, but if you don't know how to do this, this means you don't know how to use After Effects well enough to be using Duik.

Seach for this kind of things without Duik first, and then you'll be able to find how Duik can ease the process (or not).

Look for information about the puppet tool, or Mesh Warp, or any other deformation method. The characters presentations in League of Legends use this kind of stuff and I think you cloud find information about it

Hey :) Firstly, i love your avatar :D

Secondly, like you said i am not very good at AE, i am still trying to learn.

I know i can do that with pupped/mesh warp and i know how to use them, but i was wondering if DuiK can help me for a natural idle/breathing effect.

Like i said before, all tutorials i saw about walking a 2d character generally so i though i better ask here :)
