A much more successful run trial. Pretty happy with this one and I'm starting to get the hang of the flow now, though I'm only animating one aspect of one subject :) Despite the long tedious work, the finished animation is always worth it.
Seeing runs built on 6's but that are drawn on paper seem a lot more smooth than when I do it on camera. I attribute it to mostly myself being sloppy but I think I need to know when to use that particular run... I don't think one could go any faster (unless the guy has extremely short legs). But the 8's feel somewhat between a run and a jog... I don't know maybe it's just me and my fuzzy eyes in the morning.
The shiny bits are from the third hand tool.
