This is my first thread, CreativeCOW helped me so much in the past, but I have a look/effect I want to achieve and I don't know where to start.
I have been asked by a client to achieve this:

Any help advise about it??? Does anyone knows how to make it?

Thank you in advance!

From the look of the character's clothing, and the stiffness of it, it most certainly was done in a 3D package. It would be a relatively easy (if you know a 3D package well) task to animate the character walking, then, by working with a copy or clone of that 3D character, attach a particle system that would emit from every vertex, or x number of vertices, etc. This would give you the animated shapes which appear to revolve around and emit from, the character. Not a simple job if you don't know a 3D package, and not something you'd want to attack without, at the very least, the included version of C4D in After Effects CC.
