I think you should start with a skeleton and build your animation off that.
I tried that. It didn't work so well. I don't know how to make the skeleton, or draw over it later.
Last time I tried that, the skeleton was too small to fit anything, so I had to draw over it.

Edit: Tried again. Here is the result:


Hello. I actually think this is a very decent run animation, but it is more suited to 2d/platformer style. As I was reading through the thread the first thing I noticed about your runcycle was the lack of vertical movement, making the character seem as though he/she were gliding over the ground like a ghost. It's good that you managed to catch that issue on your own.

I'm not very good at 2.5d art. I just thought I'd give you some encouragement. Keep it up!

Sorry for late response. I was really busy this week.
So, how do I make it, then? I made the second feet (with the lighter shade) 3 pixels under the darker one. So I thought I made the perspective right.
What can I do to fix it? I get that I don't have sense of ground, but I don't know how... "have it".

Thanks!

If you want to emulate the style, might as well look at this as well.

I think now I understand the problem I had. Thanks! I'll try and post as soon as possible.
