Almost there! Tweak the frames where the back leg raises up, it holds at the top for just a bit too long and gives her a bit of a limp!

How should i tweak them exactly? Make her raise the leg lower? Also by back leg you mean her left, right? When it raises to the front or when it raises to the back is the problem?
Thanks for your continued interest :)

The problem is when the knee is up for too long on the left leg, yes! Try to work from a video of someone running, reference in animation is ALWAYS helpful!

The animation's really improved loads.The only thing I can point out is the back leg doesn't stretch out before hitting the ground like the front does.The frame with it holding up could probably be replaced with it stretched so what MysteryMeat pointed out is also solved.

@misterymeat: yeah i see it now, at least the exension of her leg i'm not so sure i get it about the satying up too long.Maybe lowering it a little?
@lpflicke. There is one frame where her left stretches down to touch the ground, already, tho.

Do you mean adding a second one? How? Adding more frames? Or changng an animation? Whiche? The one where her leg is raised slightly? Maybe the one where her legs are really spread open?
Thanks a lot, btw! :)

You have a frame similar to #1 in the image(except leg is raised) but not one like #7/ for the back leg.

I'm sorry i must be really annoying with all these questions. Anyway, I've added this frame to the animation(and corrected a couple of things):

Now she looks like this:

What do you think?
Thanks for your suport :)

Very close to being done I'd say; just a few things to tweak.
You've put the frame after the leg goes down so its not very noticeable and it stays up quite long before going down.
when its coming up it also almost touches the floor but its not that noticeable because its blocked by the front leg.





Rough edit to illustrate points.

Wow! More errors? I wonder how I'm gonna manage when I have to fly solo. It's not like I can post every sprite I make here. And my eye really can't detect them. Thanks you so much for all your help! You're awesome. :)
Well for the hopefully last time, here she is running:

It stays a bit long when the back foot hits the ground so I deleted a frame and I'd say its done now.


Its basically done but there is a weird jolt forwards in one of the frames.
