Helpful criticism is warmly welcomed and needed
(Also, am I allowed to post future animations on this thread as well?)

It's your own thread, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to post future animations on this thread. It'd help to reduce clutter on the forum page as well.

Regarding your animation:
-The run could use a bit of work. The big rule when running is that "the feet are off the ground for more frames than they're on the ground." As you have it right now it looks more like the stick figure is just stumbling.
-You seem to have a very light grasp on anticipation ,(basically "loading up"), before you do an action. That's good. Keep doing that.

Generally, a lot of the issues I'm noticing are more of the fundamental underlying stuff that comes with animation. It's pretty normal when people are starting out to have a phase like this, but it's up to you how you'll deal with it. Just make sure you keep practicing!
