Animation Time! - Toony Bipedal Character Rig

Today's Inspiration:
I consider myself an average guy who has been blessed with a gift. That doesn't mean my life’s a walk because of this gift, but rather that I knew very early in life what direction I would be going in. I talk to people all the time that aren't sure of the direction they took or will go in so in that I'm content. I hope the powers that be will allow me to continue to participate in this very wonderful field. I like very much what I do.
