Ok...
I'm not the person to get mad at someone, but don't blame everyone else for you not putting some effort into your animation.
There is no way you looked at that tutorial and made that ( I hope ).

Do what I did at the when I first started; save that image and draw over it until you get the idea about how to make a good walk/run animation, and just keep doing that until you get it right.

And with Flash I test myself, I see if I can draw something and if I can't, I keep trying.

Sorry for double post, but; I don't think I meant you were blaming everyone, but
"I used this fucking tutorialyou guys told me to use and the cycle is right here And it still looks like fucking shit " didn't exactly sound like a thank you.

Um you didn't use the tutorials. Considering that you must have not even looked at the walk cycle i sent you. I even provided the fla to look at to.

Man, you're right about it looking like shit. Wow.

Pro tip: Draw the body and leg movements first, followed by arms and head.

Im not looking for stick men walking im looking for more detailed stuff. And i did use them I am a shitty animator I have only animated stick men films. Im looking to exceed from that. Thats why every day i post tests in hopes of getting better so I can make a name for myself

Sorry for double post
I keep drawing the same movements from what I see in tutorials so instead of doing that I will watch myself walk and animating it according to my imagination and see if that looks smooth

all walk movements start with a skeleton. they were stick to show how it works. You can reanimate over it with a person.

Dont do this, this may seem easy now, but in the long run it will make things much more annoying.

Quick question, are you animating in key frames?

See, now you're getting indignant.

The bottom line is that a GOOD walk cycle takes time and effort. I've never met a person who has made a good walk cycle after less than five tries.

Listen to Bubbowrap. My first walk cycle was awful. I didnt really stick with walk cycles to perfect them but, everytime I needed to do one I improved.

Yes i know that Its not like madness came in 5 days but I never asked for someone to come along and say well this sucks although I probaly do want to take back what I said in the beginning of this post. Say do you have to redraw over the skeleton (stick) or not

ok this is what i want you to do, turn on onion skinning. draw the contact frame, then draw the next contact frame. look at yourself in the mirror if you need a reference but just study how you look right when your foot hits the ground. don't be afraid to walk like a cartoon. move the second contact frame over so theres an empty frame between them(hit F7 on the first frame), in that one draw what you look like when 1 legs crosses the other. IMPORTANT: don't just draw them frame by frame in order. draw 2 extreme poses then draw the frame in the middle of that then draw the frame in between that. are you listening? I don't think you are and i don't think you read the entire tutorial.

if the first step is frame 1 and the next is 9. then draw the frames in this order
1, 9, 5, 3, 7, 2, 4, 6, 8

Makes sense. I will try it and see how it turns out and try some other tutorials as well. Sorry for acting so pissy earlier. Thanks for the advice.

All the best

Yes, I guess you think Richard Williams is an animation "nub", cause those are his words not mine.

And don't get your head up your ass, seeing as your not a very good animator.
