Well, when the brain and the hands refuse to cooperate, and they show about as much emotion as a corndog (basic oblong shape with a stick up their butts), it's time to take a break and do some warm up exercise to loosen up.
Did some more movement studies.
it will be hard to show a fight with waterbending inspired moves. Gonna have to take key poses and push them some more.
And whaddaya know, it helped. Now the penguins look like happy corndogs!
