Animator

If the animation you are working on just doesn't look right, get out of your chair and act it out yourself. If you exaggerate the movements, you'll eventually pick out the subtleties you were missing.

Even better, film yourself acting out these bits. Many digital cameras have a short video setting, and it can really help with the timing. Just make sure that these videos don't find their way onto the internet.
