You need to begin with the underlying form and anatomy. It's not fooling anyone cutting and shifting pixels around on a timeline to give the impression of motion. That said, It can work, but you have to know what you're doing.

Having an idea of the final rendered (static) image is all well and good but you need to go back to basics.

Have a look through some my old posts... I've got a few tutes on walk cycles and so on that may help you.

Buy the book - The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams

Haha, initially I thought he looked a bit like michael jackson, but now that he's moving in a way that a normal human would have to excercise great control over his body to accomplish, he really looks like he's dancing!
