ANIMATION PRACTICE - RUN

I'm having a lot of fun messing around with animation. This is my second attempt at it and I wanted to focus on a human figure - so I studied running. The last animation I did was about a year ago and was a deviation of the simple bouncing ball exercise except with Wendell (see below). 

Here are some process shots of the various stages. I have a lot of respect for animators. Done in Photoshop CS6.
