    Posting here until my stickman skills get better

    My stickman skills suck balls and it's time to polish up.

    I'm starting from the very basics so here is a run/walk loop that I animated for the Pivot Points:

    Any tips, advice and whatnot are warmly appreciated!

    Run:
    Be sure you kick that back leg up more! that helps emphasize the speed of a run, and makes running less tiresome IRL. keep it smooth though, don't snap it at the top of the step like so many others do. give the foot a smooth movement arc as it's what people will be following with their eyes if they look there. nice work on the arms, and perhaps lean him over more/move the head less.

    Walk:
    If you're going to move the head, at least move the torso with it!

    Hey, thanks a lot man, will use everything you said to improve myself tomorrow (bed time for me now)! I really need to look at some videos though because all I have been doing is watching my own body walk/run to assist in realism q: Also damn, I completely forgot about the torso in the walk, I rushed past it!

    The run was more of a jog based on the poses, but they looked good. I hope you keep animating
