Critique my animation

on: November 25, 2018, 05:58:59 pm
So i made this running animation and since I'm not an artist I was wondering if someone here could point out some things I could improve with my animation?

Your image embed doesn't work. Dropbox isn't nice about hotlinking, I recommend using a dedicated image host such as imgur instead.

The character is moving very slowly, which doesn't match the large movement of their hat. I think the animation should either play faster, or have fewer frames.

I am having trouble following the character's legs. How many steps are there per animation loop? It seems like the front leg cycles twice for every cycle of the back leg.

I sped up the animation by 25% and colored one leg in a darker color so its easier to track. I also made the hat more fluid
But the legs feel very static and i don't know what to do about it really without scaling up the animation

When the right leg goes forward the right arm should go backwards.

try dropping two frames during the middle so the legs spend less time there
PSA: use imgur
