Week 3 - 48 Percent Lip Sync (Final)

I think "final" isn't quite accurate, but since this is the final week for this assignment I guess it's appropriate.  As far as this has come from a week ago, there's still quite a bit of work to be done here.  This is probably the first time where I really felt the AM syllabus failed me; three weeks just wasn't enough time to learn and fully implement lip sync and facial animation.  I'm sure these principles will become second nature a little further down the line, but I really would have liked some more time with this assignment.  On the other hand, I'm also completely sick of this assignment.  I found myself nitpicking everything this week, even animation I had considered "finished" several weeks ago.  It was at that point i realized it was time to just do what I could do, hand it in, and let it sit for a while; I'll eventually come back to it later and fix what needs fixing.  You'll see I added some quasi-clothing, just so he doesn't look naked.  The clothes aren't nearly as impressive as what Gene drew up:
