I have to say the run is excellent. Good timing. I really like this up until the jump. I really can't put my finger on it, but its as if the jump does not match the character's gait. I think it may be the trajectory but I could be wrong. It is very very close to being perfect in my eyes. Nice work so far.

Another really nice one. Nu is right, the character seems to jump ahead too fast and his takeoff foot seems to slide. Maybe put a texture on the ground so we know his foot is planted.
Really fantastic otherwise. Landing directly into a run... thats some tough beans.

Thanks for the replies :)

I will put a texture on the ground

so it will be more clear.

Hey this is not bad. Beside what has already been mentioned, I would love to see him hit a more dynamic pose at the apex of his jump, and then hold it for a few frames. Something more comic book style to give it some flare. Also the contact frame when he lands seems wrong. It should be more of a "stretch" just before a squash. Your line of action could be alot stronger there.

cool loop :)
I dont like the left harm that goes foward just as the jumps start then snaps behind :S
It doesnt folow the motion but thats my pov :)
