Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

    Good job caleb. Like Wayne said focus on the key poses and try to have a sense of balance on all of them. Right now the feet are pretty unbalances. Keep it up!

    exercise accomplished...
    looks like believable movement...
    (looks like the feet are always in front and never behind)
    good work.

    They do get tougher but I know you can handle it ;)
    Sometimes it just takes time for your eye to see the issues and how to fix them. Like trying to fill a bottle with a funnel too fast.

    With this one you are on the right path but it looks like there’s a few things getting stuck in the funnel.
    First focus on the key poses. Contact > Down > Passing > Up > (the mirrored poses)
    The easiest ones to start with are the Contact, Passing and then the Mirrored contact.
    It looks like your passing position is off balance. He should be over the top of the planted foot, but his foot is too far in front in your animation.
    That should take care of a lot of the issues, but then try to roll the foot off the ground and don’t let it snap off the ground.
    Also have a look to make sure that the left leg is doing the same thing as the other side, it looks a little different.

    Keep at this one Caleb. You will get there, a few adjustments and everything will start falling into place.

    This is a great start, and it looks pretty good from the front. But from the side, the feet feel like they are leading the head - almost pulling it along because they seem too far forward. Also , the toes flopping down looks odd, as if its also happening too soon. Study Wayne's version again and try to see the differences. I think you just need to adjust your timings and smooth it out a little. FYI , it took me atleast 15 attempts at this before I was happy enough to move on to rivets walk, so don't be put off by your first attempt, practice is key here and you are definitely headed in the right direction :) . Well done .
