This is my weight lifting animation.
This is originally 20 frames but some I repeated for anticipation and actions like the shudders at peak lifting state. I had to add a few extra frames after watching the finished animation back for the 'step back' part just of the leg mid-action.
I chose a simple character just for principle it's a basic weight lift and to use a complex character would take away from the brief and isn't really necessary.
I'm pleased with the general flow of the movement but to improve it would add more frames between possibly to create a smoother finish. Also clean some of the lines up.
