Done now, I guess? A milion thanks!

I don't know how I'm gonna train myself to spot these things on my own, though.

Look at other people's animations (including frame-by-frame), and look at videos of real people walking as well. Pay attention to how the different parts move relative to each other, look for patterns, as well as features that make each gait unique.

Maybe this will help you. I did a fast edit on your last animation.

It's an easy way to create a walk-cycle. Fix the front leg (in this case,the right one) and animate it completly.
Mark every position of the leg with numbers can help a lot. Now you can use the positions of the right leg, to animate the left one.
Take a look at the frames, in this case you have 8 frames. Split the number of frames(half), to know the opposite position like:

Frame:
1234 | 5678
Position Right Leg:
1234 | 5678
Positon Left Leg:
5678 | 1234

If the right leg starts with Position1 in Frame1
Then the left leg starts with Position1 in Frame5

You can try the same to the Arms/Hands
I hope this will help you.


Notice: I also did the same with her head

Frame:
1234 | 5678
Position Head:

Sorry for my bad english, don't used it for a long time  :-[

Made a simple jumping animation. Is her arm movement too jarring?


Thanks for checking my inane questions out.
