Save as and loop it. I'm reasonably happy with it, considering it's really my first serious attempt at a character walk cycle. The legs are still a little wonky, I think, and it still seems to lack a good sense of weight/gravity. Anyone have some criticism for me on how to improve this? Thanks a lot!

Not looking bad, great for a first effort. Yo need to add roation to the shoulder/upper body area. When the left leg is forward, the shoulders sway in the opposite direction, so the right shoulder is forward, and vica verca. Add abit of a head nodd with the up down motion, delayed by 2-3 frames for some nice overlapping motion. keep it up!

Thanks for the advice! Here's an updated version, with several additional tweaks.
