Zoot Manhatten Flash Animation

Zoot was a character I developed for a sculpting class. I used him again for this flash assignment.

This was my first attempt at animating with replacements. The key poses are a little awkward I'll admit and the hands and arms flail about a little too much but I like the the expressions he makes and the timing to the dialogue.
I also think some of the poses are pretty fun. Really I think it's that last one that gets me (where he drops down).
What do you all think? Should I hold on to ol' Zoot?

Some Flash Animation

Started out by loosely sketching the key poses on paper, scanning them in and importing them into Flash. After that I would trace them on another layer and add some breakdowns and then inbetweens. I added one more layer and then tied it all down (straight ahead).

It's a little too pose-to-pose but I liked working like this. I think I'll try this again with the line tool to keep the line quality consistent.

Been trying to practice my caricaturing skills. These are usually done when I'm chillin' at a bar or something.
