    Hey, that's not bad.

    The fall and landing was quite nice, the movement was really good.
    The moonwalk was also pretty cool, but following that, when he went forward, the feet looked like they were sliding off of the ground as opposed to pushing on it, as one does when they walk forward. When a foot hits the ground, it should stay in the same place until it leaves the ground again in almost every situation.
    Once you've worked out the kinks there, maybe give things like two sticks interacting in some way a try.

    Courtesy is appreciated~

    A great trick for keeping the feet of your stickman from sliding is to put a small figure with just an origin point on the heel-point of the stick figure. That way when you go to move the stickfigure you have a point marking where the joint was in the previous frame and you can easily line the foot/leg up with the point.

    I would recommend making a couple animations of just walking/running to practice this method. So far you're off to a good start! Keep it up!

    Thanks. You're completely right about the foot. I was thinking of it the wrong way...but I've actually thought of an exception where the foot would slide. Anyways, I'll keep that in mind.
