Animation Time! - ntMonkey Rig

Today's Inspiration:
For me, the perfect film has no dialogue at all. It's purely a visual, emotional, visceral kind of experience. And I think one can create wonderful depth and meaning and communication without using words. I started out as an illustrator and a cartoonist and caricature artist, as for me the visual is primary.

Mr. Big Shot - Animation Time!

Today's Animation Time features the Mr. Big Shot Rig.
Mr. Big Shot anticipates the jump. He then leans over an leaps to the next pole with feet dragging and arms reaching. Upon landing his body recoils slightly with a little slip and readjustment in the hands and feet.
