Animation Time! - Cuty Rig

Today's Inspiration:
Keep working, even if you don’t have any assignments. Self-initiated projects always seem to lead to real jobs. In any case, if you don’t feel compelled to create work on your own, then you probably shouldn’t be a professional artist. It’s important to realize that being your own boss has its rewards, but it requires discipline and diligence.
