Leonardo 'legs' armature test
Well this is why you test these things. Tim Hittle took on the task of putting the Leo legs through a trial run. During Leo's first step the ankle broke when all the weight of the armature was on it and it was off balance. Tim still persevered and made a cute little moment out of it.

All and all though a favorable review from Tim on the armature. Once we can beef up the ankle joint it seems things will be good to go. No matter I am excited to see this movement and am amazed at how good and meticulous Tim was even with this test. It is a lovely bit of animation.
