Walk.swf by Cpl-DarkMirage

Decided to make a test animation of Walking on Flash. Took about 2 hours and whatever, but that's becase I had so many layers not working properly and because I tried to put in a pause/play button.

ANYWAYS, Keep an eye out for CakeBakers... I'm hoping t have it done by Dec.15!

How fun, a walk cycle! And you took an original view too! Which makes a walk cycle even more difficult. They say when you can make a good walk cycle, you can animate.
You probably already saw it, but the arm is on a point a bit hyper. (happens to me all the time).
It's good you thought of letting him go up and down, but he misses a movement in his hear. Because everything moves, it feels the hair is made from metal/plastic or something. Remember all tiny loose parts should move too!
I have a personal taste for hand drawn animations too. The arms here are static because you rotated them, but the legs are more lively because you drew them. Mayba make a choice how you want to animate next time?
What do you think?

Very good walking cycle, the viewpoint is perfect, the arms may need to be adjusted a bit since they seem a bit stiff and awkward. His head overall looks also very still like if he doesn't have movement for it, feel free to think about the eyes as-well, could he be looking at something? But seems good for the size of the head, also after watching the feet go back and forth for a few minutes, I noticed that they may need to be altered a little bit, just a small tweak, since the right foot in the background looks slightly unnatural when touching the ground, due to a sort of two-dimensional look of it. On a side note, great job, can't wait to see if you'll upload another animation test so others can give their thoughts.

Is that a heartbeat in the BG may wanna offset it a little so it doesn't fall on the same beat as each footstep.
