Oh and the head rotates too.

But does it? People do not move their heads left and right when they run or walk. You look where you run.

Otherwise good crits :)
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I know that lol I was also against the head rotation thing a while ago too.  But I feel it helps add to the animations liveliness.  And the way I imagine it is there isn't just a head rotation its the head being slightly pulled by the movement of the arms as they cross over the body which shows more of one side of the head.  Although in reality being creative and wacky animators allows us to experiment with our animations.

Thanks to Mike, I realized the whole walk cycle was missing some "bounce". Also, I'm making an idle stance for the character.

I only added the pants because I want to plan out how his shirt moves around and stuff, like what Mike pointed out in his earlier post. Same goes for the idle. Also, there are three frames at the start for the moving hair, I haven't made much progress with that, but hopefully I won't be a lazy bastard over my break and finish these up. :)
And happy holidays to everyone here! ;D

Double Post spectacular... ok no.
Added arms to the idle stance

Also, I made a jump

EDIT
Reworked the sprite, replaced the clothing, and scrapped the red gloves.

His right foot looks elevated above his left. Drop it down 1 pixel. His proportions seem uneasily distorted - torso elongated, legs too tall. Left leg seems awkward being straight. That's a lotta hair.
