I sketch a lot when I have down time (or just cant be bothered to finish the animation I'm working on).

The biggest trick I took away was how he uses a single path with a stroke to build the arms and legs. Its a bit more work than using Duik or just rotating layers, but you have complete control over how the limb bends and I'll definitely use this method again.

Here's the animation:
