I love this motion very very much!! But if you want to move head from side to side, then it lacks motion to left side. Now it swings to the right and back to straight
ps: and I love wider eyes variant a lot more!

The new animation is a huge improvement  :y:
But I think the head move is too much. Do you shake 'no' constantly when you walk?

This looks really nice so far, but I dunno about the head rotation. I think it only works in very few, overly cartoony cases. Who rotates their head while walking?
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

i tend to let my head roll occasionally, but pitch and yaw are usually directed to where im focusing
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

agreed... I think that's a consensus then.. the head rotation is a bit too much... I stand corrected...

Thanks for the encouraging words.  Does anyone care to take a crack at getting the head to look correct?  I have stared at this for so long that I can't see it clearly anymore.
