The Strut.
 
I thought I’d animate Preston Blair’s strut cycle from his book “cartoon animation.” I actually find it quite difficult to draw legs in proportion with bodies. I usually draw them too short and have the torso too long. I’m actually pleased with the way this came out though.

After I finished it, I found the original film it’s from, although it looks like a different character design. The sequence starts at about 0.59 and finishes at 1.04 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtcJ7gvJP0Q
I certainly have a lot to learn about animation before I can create key poses like this.
