Animating is not my strong point... :s

Eeeeeek I have just realised how rusty my animating skills have become! Over the past few days I have been trying to map out how and where I want my key poses and movements to fit in with the clip, and I must admit I am finding it pretty difficult to get into the flow of it. Our tutor Andy recommended that we do a really quick test consisting of very simple shaped characters before we included any detail, to help us get the movement accurate before making the animation look 'pretty.' So I have given it a go, and although it does look pretty terrible, it has made me think about the movements more precisely and it's nice not to worry about having to make the characters look appealing right from the start. Here is my (extremely rough!) first go at animating the 11 second clip :)
