2D Rigging and Animation

Here are a couple of 2D rigging and animation examples that I've completed recently on software courses for After Effects and CelAction. I want to do something more complicated next! ^_^
I created all these characters myself except the Reindeer, which is an asset used in CBBC series 'Let's Play,' by A Productions Ltd.

CelAction2D rigging/animation

Here is a quick walk cycle I knocked up as part of industry CelAction2D training I undertook last year.
I loved the course, especially rigging. It takes so much prior planning building your character in pieces in Photoshop. I normally don't get to be a part of that process in 3D.
I loved CelAction and would really like to keep my skills! As part of the course we were offered a discount on the software but I never heard back from the developers. I fear I am forgetting all I learned, especially since I have recently fallen down an After Effects hole!
You might recognise this character from my Squishy Head comics! I always envisaged it as a short series of uber short cartoons. I have been re-rigging her in AE for this purpose. I'd love to make a tiny web-series ^_^
I wish I could show more of my work on the course, but unfortunately it got eaten by network issues! Sad times.
