So I’ve finished my second animation test with Blender!  After much trail and tribulation, it’s done, complete with a rigged character, shape keys, moving background (thanks to a great texture from CGTextures.com,) more-complex scene, eyes, UV-mapped body (texture painted with Gimp,) and, last but not least, sound effects from Freesound.org!

Here it is – enjoy and please comment!
