A good combination of learning applied here. I think we need an added sound for the jump part as well to make it even better. That would take a bit of experimenting in Audacity or Soundbooth and then reimporting into the Maya timeline. The animation shows the application of a number of the animation principles (yay! for animation principles). We see anticipation, follow through, arcs, spacing, timing, ease-in and ease-out. The better the understanding of those foundations the bigger the dream can be dreamt. Nice work Jacq. (I re-posted after correcting a typo)
