Somewhere between a first and second pass. Enjoy!

Lookin' good - I think the top half of his body should follow through a little when he kicks the staff. I like the spin, it looks cool!

There is something that is bothering me about where the weight is shifted when the bag is set down. You start with the weight over his right foot to counter the sack IMAGE1
But then I think the side to side shift of weight to the left foot needs to be more obvious in the sillouhett. and the hips need to rotate slightly toward the direction of the sack IMAGE2
If you don't see these pictures im posting let me know and i'll show them to you.

oh i also forgot. You the staff eases into the spin and it doesn't need to. Aaaaaand how did you set up the bage and its strap.

thanks for the crits guys. i'll come back and tweak it next quarter when i do another pass through. dave, about your last comment, it may not need to ease into the spin, but realistically, that's what happens. the kick gives it some momentum and the hands accelerate it around into place. otherwise he'd hurt his foot if he blasted it will all his might. not something a master would likely do.
the bag is terribly simple. i can send it to you, if you want to check it out. it's just a couple clusters attached to controls and a squash deformer.
