on-the-side creepy-crawlies

So I've been working on the very talented Gayane Bagdasaryan's thesis and it's an honor working for such an awesome animator. I'm animating a supporting spider character for her, and she's kindly given me the permission to share it on my blog.

I'm doing this in ToonBoom Animate Pro 2, which I've never used before, so it's a learning experience for me. However, I'm only just using the software for the basic frame-by-frame drawn animation, so it's pretty much like Flash.

This is one of my favorite shots that I've animated:

They're all quick shots, but really fun to work with.

First pass at blocking for our Jekyll and Hyde animation showing a shift of thought. The timing needs a lot of work. The total time has to be less than 10 seconds so everything is rushed now. So any feedback would be welcome!
