Revamping Hammerman

Mostly the animation and anatomy, trying to add more 'bounce' to it. So far its just the run.

if his left/closest leg is at it's extreme pose, all the way to the back of the character (our right), his knee is still bent. My guess is that it doesn't really shrink, but it stretches out there to keep a bend in it.

Souly, the shaking part is for something I haven't added yet. Basically, when he faces that way, he drags the hammer closer, then uses the slack fro the next step.
Everything else- will do

Yea but if this were in a game that "shaking" would be stupidly annoying. IMO

His far step is 6 frames long, his close step is 5.
Then all of a sudden the character freezes, and is on the ground halted for 7 frames.
So unless the character in game halts on every step, which in it's own would be annoying.
Then while those 7 frames play and the character is moving, he floats like he's on ice, so this walk cycle would not work in a game. :/


I got it down to just 5 frames not moving, but this would still matter in a game.
And I also removed a frame from the far leg since it only requires 5 frames to do not 6.

The lines I've placed are where his leg just shrinks, you think it bends, but really it just gets smaller because you're too afraid to draw new frames from scratch it seems.

I really dislike the double shake because it wouldn't happen.
In reality it would only do one bounce due to friction, after the initial bounce it would drag not bounce repeatedly.
His arms would snap back to the bounce only once, and then momentum would cause it to move smoothly because it's weight is going in one direction.
I mean how you have it it looks like he can't even lift the thing so it skips because he has no momentum going on the hammer.

So should I keep the other shaking besides the hand to show strain?
