Flour Sack Jump (rough animation)

One of the practices many animators use is animating a flour sack. First off its the basic shape of a two legged creature, you can use it to practice animating weight and putting personality into a character. There are many actions you can make your flour sack do, like walking, pushing a heavy object, acting, jumping and ect.

I decided to do a jump first. That way I can practice timing, squash and stretch, and weight. Here is the rough animation so far:

I'm going to add in more frames to smooth it out. After finishing the animation I'm going to color the flour sack and possibly add in a little background, perhaps a kitchen.

I can't wait to do more flour sack animations.
