Made this two things cause I was bored and parents finally let me animate again after taking away my tablet for a whole month.

Also, this is a glorified request for help with a walking animation.

The dancing stick guy in your first animation was a great dancer.

Hey bud, you need to learn more. Actualy more practice is what you need and don't forget to learn 12 basic principal of animation later or now (up to you). Later you will be a good animator and also take a referance of other people animation too.
Keep it up!

Ok. I will probably look that up later. also, I really need help with walk cycles. I just can't do it. Everytime I try, I just fail horrible and learn nothing.

This guy's youtube channel has been helping me immensely: https://www.youtube.com/user/FlashBepler/videos
Hopefully it'lll help you as well. He goes really in depth to help you understand both the physics and animating principles in every video.
Here is a walking tutorial from him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jexcI3gvMug

I've come to understand that with animating; don't be ashamed to copy methods (fight scenes, walking, running, effects) from those who are spectacular animators. Honestly, it comes with this repetition and constant redrawing that builds a) muscle memory, b) habitual understanding of what you're doing and c) creativity. Once you've got the basics down and can animate on the fly, the rest just comes with creativity. In my opinion, that's what separates someone like Hyun from Shingo Natsume.
