    There are tons of tutorials right here on DD that can help you. If you're a visual learner, I'd suggest finding videos on YouTube or downloading and studying .piv files of Elite and Veteran animators. Try and replicate what they do, and then apply it into you're animations. (I say this because if you copy the movements exactly as it is in the animation, you can't really call it yours.)

    Good luck

    You'll never get better with that attitude. Every time you see an animation that's better than yours, don't think that you suck, but instead remember that EVERY SINGLE animator started out the same way you did. The only way to get as good as them is to practice until you can do walk cycles and fights in your sleep, then practice some more.

    Yeah what evo said, but try not to copy other animators style, be original and most importantly fun dude
