This walk looks like the skeleton is on a skateboard. Don't make the foot slide back, just make it move back and forward...if that makes sense.

When I animate, I rough in the basic figure of all the frames first before I go through and do all the detail. That way you can get the motion right before you've committed a lot of your time. So I say just rough it in first, as your method stands at the moment, I think you'll run into some troubles ahead if you don't.  :)

@ Malor : it's looks like a skeleton on a skateboard because I have animate only a leg :D
@ EyeCraft : you're right, I will try do animate only the rough and put details after

Needs upper body motion! Scar should sway in the wind! as his left leg goes forward, so should his right arm.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful

Yeah, I was not going to mention that, because I assumed it was only in the early stages, but now..it is in desperite need of upper body movement, and now that I see them both moving..it looks better..my bad :-[

It's not a skeleton but a man disguise in a skeleton, so the head isn't a skull but a mask
