Don't just stand there. Do something. Inevitably, your character has to come to life. In this recent sketch by Manny Aguilar, the figure he's designed is animated and enlivened.

Manny assists students prepare for their Character Design II curriculum. He's a versatile artist and has been featured before on the Academy's blog this past April 12.
