hi there! it looks pretty good. one thing though you should prob put this in work in progress area ;) but to the animation the jump looks pretty good but the jump up needs more weight, right now she kind of slides to place it looks like. need a little more arc and falow through. :thumbsup: the back flip looks pretty nice agian just a little more weight. but nice work so far :)

It is pretty good so far. I want to suggest a few things though. It comes down to what kind of animator you are. I am a very broad animator so my suggestions are along those lines. the walk is fine but I want to feel more weight which would be more up to down added, and I noticed the knee kind of pops when she puts weight on there.

Now about the jump. It is to mechanical. When she is anticipating the jump it is same bend every time. Make her bend more with each one and don't twin anything. Incase you don't know what twinning is it is where the pose is symetrical. Her arms are same. Make them a little different and legs as well. One leg should always lead. Also work on the arcs. I thought I want more exageration at the top of the jump. Maybe a higher arc have her more tucked in. Remember to always exagerate things. Good luck. It is good work so far.
