Goober Post-Run Cycle

Wow, I haven't posted anything since Monday, I usually don't go that long between posts. But if you're looking for a classic cartoon related post bear with me for another day or so. I haven't posted anything crappy of mine in awhile so here's a short pencil test of a run cycle I did the other day. I haven't worked on anything in a week or so but I've been reading Shamus Culhane's book Animation from Script to Screen and he talks about just drawing and not thinking about anything. Not to let anything interrupt the flow of creativity. Forget the timing and everything and just draw, not stopping to fix a bad drawing, just toss it and keep going. I tried this approach and drew some quick roughs and then went back later and cleaned them up. It turned out better than I thought, I find walks and runs really difficult but I think this one turned out OK. There's some improvement but I've still got a long way to go.
