I've made flipbooks of stick men doing jumping jacks or the disco, and have used Maya before, too, but I consider these my first OFFICIAL animations. Hooray! Special thanks to my sister for helping time the "live" models (a bouncy ball and pseudo-tennis ball*).

*Looks like a tennis ball but it's a dog chew toy.
EDIT: Just realized the ball never leaves the page. When it's played on a loop this isn't a problem, though...
