More Animation With Dialogue

I'm done animating for the night, and I'm on schedule! As long as I keep up with it, I will finish with plenty of time.

Out of all the scenes I had to do this week, 3 of them had dialogue, and I am glad that I'm really enjoying doing lip sync. And I've also discovered I really like animating Keith! Here is a pencil test of the first dialogue he has in the animation:

I win, yet again from Lauren Blakely on Vimeo.
(P.S., that angry-sounding "MMMMM!!" is sound from the scene that follows this one. I just forgot to take it out for this clip)

He looks kind of sassy, but it works. I also realize his arm and the skateboard it's holding disappear about halfway through. Don't worry, that won't happen in the cleaned up version.

If you felt like making any changes, his right arm could raise to emphasize his point at the end. Perhaps a fist in the air? No biggie, though.

Do you mean the arm that's not holding the skateboard? I could try to do that if I have time.

Yes, I meant the arm not holding the skateboard. Although it works way it is as well, so it should be a low priority.
