Duck Walkcycle

I've been trying to make a lively/interesting walkcycle for this duck -

And I'd like to make it smoother without adding extra AA colors.

100% - -

any advice/pointers?

It looks great! ;D
I really like how the beak jumps up and down, just perfect.
I tried to make the feet a bit more flappy and flat:

Not sure if it's better than yours though :)

I love the roughness of the toon and you've nailed its walk likeness perfectly. Well played.
One does not simply crit.

I raised ducks as a kid, what stands out to me as preventing it from being fully duck-like is the lack of torso rotation. His head remains more or less straight but his body should swing away from each raising foot.
