Great, you looked at the stick tutorial!

nice, although the body should move up and down a bit on the walk, and so should the head (obviously)

It's much better than your last, you are showing great signs of improvement!

Its good for your first, but still, there is alot that can be improved, today, I made this animation for one guy here, It'll help you http://www.truploader.com/view/267056

What were the problems about your animation ?
Stiffness, the back didnt bend
The head didnt move up and down
there was no bounce for the walk, when people walk they bounce, if you see just a half of the body, it should look like someone throw them in the water and they're floating.. =D

thanks KD and Tawnik for giving me advice on how to make it less stiff (moving more limbs, the head and back/bouncing)

i will try to do some more tries on walking loops and then i might try to do a "real" walk so he actually moves forward instead of just standing still.

Yea, real walking is defiantly much harder.

Try different animations

Try a normal, cool walk, like the one you have there

Try a more laid back walk, one thats not so "straight"

A crippled walk, where one leg drags and his arms are around it

And a few others

Variety in test animations helps.
