Here is an assignment from the Springboard class I finished in November. This taught me a ton real fast. All of a sudden I was using motion with an inorganic object. I wasn't shooting for overlap or follow through on this, just the arc of the motions.
I hope ya dig. Getting the block to settle after was a particularly hard thing since I had to deconstrain in then animate it independently.
I start the full blown coarse work for Animation Mentor in 19 days! I'll post up a couple more before then.
