    Critique please! <3

    Hi, i would love some critiques for this walk animation i am working on.
    The girl walks into the scene and suddenly stops because there will be a cat in her path when it's finished.

    Thank you!!

    Hmm... the only thing I can think of is that it looks like her left foot makes contact with the floor, and then sticks there, during her reaction to the cat. A more natural action might be to stop short of contact, and then step backwards with that foot to account for the shift in weight from her backwards lean.

    Does that make sense?

    Zaphkiel is right, it seems like the force causing her to stop is not originating from her, it looks more like she has ropes tied around her stomach and ankle which are preventing her from moving any further foreward. If she was to stop as abruptly as she is doing she'd most likely fall forwards.

    Also the actualy strides she takes seem very jerky in that the time between the stride and the cross-over position is very short. This is giving it the impression that she strides then quickly pulls herself forward and then slows down while taking the next stride. You should keep in mind that when you walk your body and head move at a relatively constant speed. You don't move forward on the stride then stop for the cross-over and then more again for the next stride.

    The actual movement of the arms looks quite good though but it's too rough and too short to really see much.
