post more views, and fill up more of the screen with the character
everything feels like your f curves are too angular.
feet lift up slow and then set down fast, looks wierd
hands look like mittens, relax her hand poses into something sexier
secondary motion on the hair isn't working for me. Looks ok when she steps on her left foot, but wierd on the right.
Her toes pointing outward on each step looks strange. I think I know what you are trying to do, but I'd need to see more angles to tell you how to do it right
hips dont RAISE with the passing foot, they DROP under the weight of that heavy, swinging leg
Nice start, all in all..

Hi Matt,

the left leg looks like the girl wants to stomp on the floor ( can not say much about the right one - repetitive playback is bad on my machine)
It should be straight before the leg hits the floor (1 frame) - at least if you go for such an exxagerated walk as this. The feet should be straight, otherwise the lady willl look like a duck.

Hope that helped.


Have Fun,
Michael

What did you fix? All my above comments still apply.

furthermore:

legs lift too high. May be a symptom of the incorrect hip rotation. Basically, lift the foot just enought to clear the ground. Some body mentioned earlier that she looked like she was stomping. this is why
knee bend breaks wierd: maybe start peeling her heel off the ground a bit sooner to smooth out the knee pop
feet seem to rotate while they are on the ground. Find those curves and flatten them out while they are planted on the ground
The number one thing you need to fix is that hip motion. Very important to the sexy walk. More comments after that.
