Animation Tip: Blinks

Also, before a character turns he (1) blinks, (2) moves his eyes, (3) moves his head, (4) blinks again sometime in here, (5) moves the upper body, and (6) moves the lower body.

Characters also blink before they speak and they sometimes look down before they speak (so they blink, look down, blink, look up, and then blink regularly while they speak).

Take a look at our Tyson animation as a reference:

Seriously, start watching peoples' eyes around you. Pay attention to what their eye movements are like (in comparison to where their attention is focused) and how much people actually blink (that alone might amaze you).
