One problem I detect, and this is outside of the question of whether the poses are right, is that the cycles repeat too quickly. So quickly that the eye is caught by the a body part reappearing in the exact same spot rather than following it thru it's motion.

So it becomes very hard to crit these, not being able to follow th motion.

In "The Animator's Survival Kit" talks about following a quick cycle with a variation of that quick cycle before repeating, so a body part has to go thru 2 cycles before hitting the same drawing, to try to break that strobing problem.

Also we can't scrub Vimeos so it's extra hard to crit because of that.

Not that I'm much of a 2D animator, but those are the initial problems I run into here.
