Vertical movement is very important, especially in a runcycle.
Without it, the character has no weight and there is no rhythm to the run.

Does scaling an image blur it?

If you study birds and other predatory animals, you'll often notice their head, even during a full run, barely moves, even vertically. Sometimes they strangely seem to be floating independently of the rest of the entire body.

9_6 seems to have captured that a little bit, but I'd suggest taking it even further.
