jumping rope

I'm taking a tutorial class in animation and really focusing on the basics this time: not just making things move, but using timing sheets, flipping and rolling the paper while I draw and starting with basic shapes before I get too attached to my drawings. Not forgetting squash and stretch, ease in and ease out, maintaing size and volume, implying a sense of weight and arcs. Arcs everywhere. So far, I really feel like I'm learning a lot, which is great.
We've been given a giant-noggined character named Charlie and the first assignment was to make him jumprope. This is how mine turned out. Featureless, since we're supposed to focus on the basic shapes.
