Lip Sync progression, new technique for me!

I have been spending some time working on specific exercises to help me tune my animation timing and spacing, and lip sync animation seemed to be a great way to do this, as I also am a little weak in my 3D lip sync skills. I am grateful to my instructor Malcon Pierce for teaching me a new method and things to consider when creating lip sync animation. In this example, I wanted to show a progression of my idea, from initial posing and jaw open/close timing and energy to a first pass blocking that shows my idea in full and the energy being clear. This is still not fully animated but I think the idea is coming across and it's been a great learning exercise!
