ALRIGHT, I HAVE A CONFESSION. I COMPLETELY forgot about the Weebl's Stuff "Russian Dancing Men," and thought I was doing something halfway original. :XD: But my brother reminded me, and I got pretty upset when I figured out how close of a blatant copy it is. Actually, it was a subconscious tribute, I suppose.

And it makes me angry because this took 4 hours! :XD:

Anyway, the music is the "jail" theme from Lego Island. It got stuck in my head randomly after having not heard it for over 10 years. And as I listened to it, I began envisioning either a rabbi dancing, or a stereotypical Russian guy.

You really have a Spumco-like sense of design and animation. If anything, this is a lot more fluid and good-looking than most of John K's new stuff.

I never do preliminary animation, so it takes an awfully long time when I do. :XD: I'm faster when I don't do it.

But thanks! :lol:

I haven't animated myself in a long time either. But I know it'll be struggle for that sort of thing.
