it looks like hes angry when he walks, not so much...just a stroll...but i dont know what you were going for.
lighting seems off, especially on his head, where the lighting comes from above, while everywhere else the lighting comes from the right.
i dont think it looks good with skin-tight clothes, but that might just be me.
his elbow joint seems misplaced...

normal:

if that odd diagram helps any...
finally, his head is very oddly shaped....

the animation is nice and smooth though ^^ goodjob on that.

Hm, the elbow seems fine to me. It's just a bit foreshortened for a couple frames. Might want to dim down the hand a wee bit just to make that more apparent. And maybe cover it up with the shirt sleeve a bit.
The animation itself is really quite good though. Good job.

This seems to me to be basically a carbon copy of the idleworm walking tutorial's animation. I'm all for using that as a base for learning, but not for exact replication. You even seem to inherit the elbow-joint issue from the tutorial. :/
