On-Break Test

A friend from the 11secondclub sent me a link to an Animator's site by the name of KC Roeyer. On it was this neat little gymnastics test he did with a cylinder that had a pivot point in the center. I thought I'd give it a shot! I ended up not planning it's bones out well (I'm not sure how KC had it done) but it was quite a chore to get it spinning in the air correctly. Hopefully there's a shortcut out there to make animating flips easier! In the meantime here is my attempt:

It's cool how after posting it up I want to fix so many things haha. Maybe tomorrow. I tried doing this all the way through without looking back at the original as reference. If interested you can see KC Roeyer's test here:
