Really like this, can't wait to see it finished. Don't know enough about animation to really help, but I think when his left foot is making contact, it should be back a few pixels, its just when his right foot does it, it looks better by comparison.

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

I think your image suffers from a lack of contrast. You're coloring it like the background is the darkest shade possible, which reduces the possible shades you can use, resulting in...
Reduced contrast. When you move the sprite onto a lighter background,

It doesn't read so well anymore.

Yes, I should have gone for a more neutral value on the background. Not sure if it looks asgood as your edit though, but I met halfway I think on the contrast. I was thinking making darker outlines but I think this could work?
(legs are not done, no shading yet.)

UPDATE:

More or less finnished, any final suggestions?
