The first thing I see is the left arm swing is in sync with the right leg's movement so it looks a little odd. I'd try offseting the left arm's swing some. And also the left and right arm movement are quite different in their....style I guess for lack of better words. If you want the walk to be a kind of powerful...almost frustrated type walk...I'd try to get that right arm swing to be intense like the left arm swing. Basically the movement in each of the parts aren't uniformly expressing what kind of mood he is or what kind of walk it is....the up and down body movement is light and so is the head bounce but the legs and that left arm swinging quickly and relatively more intensely. Looks good so far
