I am pretty new to animation myself, only thing I can say is there isnt enough anticipation in his movements. Illustrated Principles of Animation ( from would help you out on this one i think.

Thanks ace, that's really kind from you to answer me:wise:

To be honest I wanted to ad more anticipation but I didnt find where to put them cuz the animations is kinda fast and if I add those keyframes it will bost it and the character will look really running fast.
But thanks anyway, next time I should use less poses to leave some places to some anticipations.

For now I tweaked again the animation, and I added that camera shaking effect, but I feel it's overused nowdays? isnt?

This is just my opinion on this, im not really good at animating, but I think some of the poses are a bit too still. If some of the poses would move just a little instead of just freeze in that position it might look a bit better.
