Bear walk cycle - Version 4 (cleaned and improved) by Feyrah Bear walk cycle - Version 4 (cleaned and improved) by Feyrah
Yeeep, another one, sorry for spamming your inboxes! I just really want to get this right. :)

What was changed:
-The head and tail movements were moved two frames back for natural movement.
-The shaded hindleg now properly touches the ground and isn't so glitchy anymore
-The ears are bouncey. c:
-The perspective on his nose was corrected when he looks away from the camera.
-Lines that randomly grew longer or shorter have been adjusted to blend with each other.
-Cleaned up the drawings a bit more.

Version2: [link]

Hmm, it's becoming really good, the only thing that looks a bit off to me now is the front left leg. It has a slight tick in the animation :o

Maybe try not moving the head so sideways like? keep the bear looking in the same position but give it a breakdown each time the body goes done due to the weight. I agree with mannie-G, it needs weight. The body is following a straight line while walking and doesnt give naturalism to the movement. Think of it this way, when you walk you actually bend and straighten your knees, so your body is constantly going up a down. While animating, try exaggerating this, check up some good references of real bears walking (even though if the character is cartoonish) [link] heres a good reference, even though the style and movements are more "real" than cartoonish you can clearly see how evverything combined gives it that "natural" look that most animators want.
I studied animation until this year, and animating weight, maintaining volumes and acting can be tricky but not impossible :)
Physics is your best friend when it comes to this kind of situations :p

i think he still doesnt have enough weight. you need to move his shoulders and rump as he moves, or else he just seems weightless, and bears have a LOT of weight, little fatties.

I'm not quite sure how exactly to go about that yet, but I'll try
on my next sitting on this. :)

take, for example this: [link] you can see, if you place your finger up to the screen, that his rump moves up and down. i mean of course this is a large felid, not a bear, but the same principle applies.
