Ball Play, PAP

Hi! I'm gonna start one animation. Before I get into 3d, I wanted to plan it out in Plastic Animation Paper. So, here's a rough test animation. Now the problem is... which rig should I use for this kinda animation? I wanted to have a short legged character, so I'm planning to use Bloke (by Jason Baskin). The rig looks pretty good. Though, I'm not too sure about its squash and stretch abilities. I know its quite stretchable, but I wanna stretch the character horizontally. Sadly, I can't do that with any of the free character rigs available. Of course, I can easily create that horizontal squash and stretch effect with my Norman rig. However, I don't wanna use Norman for this type of animation. So I'll just use Bloke! Any suggestions guys?
Anyhoo, here's the rough planning...



Oh yeah! I had to delete my last Harry Potter parody post because some Harry Potter fans (my harry potter loving friends) had problems with that. In the parody movie, Harry Potter really looked like a BIG schmuck. And they didn't like that! It was hurting their feelings. Well, here you go guys! Now you're happy? Common! Its just a parody! And for god's sake, stop worshiping Harry POTHEAD... ummmm.. I mean Potter.. I like Harry Potter too, but I don't worship him! lol....

later,
-A
