Leaps and Layovers

It's finally done, I've been working on this piece for too long, in my spare time whenever I felt like it.  It's a follow-up to my old man walk cycle, this time creating all the rough animation in Flash and then cleaning and coloring the final frames using Photoshop (Extended)'s "Timeline" feature.  The original idea was simply a fox jumping around and I wanted to play around with trying to have a character change shape over the duration of the animation without it feeling too obvious.  Obviously, I just kept adding more to the original idea, but it was very fun to animate and further develop the Fl > Ps pipeline.  Now that I'm done, I can start my other ideas that have been sitting on the back-burner.
