Don't Concentrate On The Finger!

I've been working on this for some time, mostly in the mornings. It's coming into fruition now.
So this isn't the first time I've tried to animate from this clip:

This clip shows the quality of my work from the beginning of my Master's Degree.

I noted before in the last post that my work here in SK as a teacher has unlocked an ability to create more compelling key poses, and I think this is evident when watching these two clips.

This was one of my better pieces of work from the past. Personally, I think my new work still comes in at a quality level above this, which is quite something since I was practicing a lot more back at that time. I've put a greater emphasis on making bold key poses, and even purposefully overdoing them to get that cartoon feel. I was careful this time to check the curves so that body parts moved relatively smoothly unless necessary. I was careful to preserve circles that real human body parts tend to move in - a feature of inertia.

I think there is still room to improve my new work, but it's a step in the right direction for sure!
