Ok so I just kinda randomly found pivot, and wanted to try it.

I just used two of the default figures to do this.

I call it "squash" :D Please tell me what I can do to get better.

Oh and also if it's ok or not.

to be honest... that about a billion times better than almost all of the "Im new to pivot" animation. Keep it up. Try to ease more, reduse stiffness by moving every joint in every frame and try to keep physics in mind when animating.

Really? Thanks! And it will look better if I move everything?

yea because it shows more of a fluid motion. That way nothing is staying in the same spot. It takes practice but if you do it well, it looks great!
