Overall it looks very nice.

Though personally I think it could use a bit more contrast, make the sword hits a bit snappier vs smooth jumping motion, and exaggerate anticipations, especially before the first jump.

Maybe also either squash him a bit more when he lands, or bend his legs a little, just for a few frames before standing still. That will give him some weight, but he wont look any less agile.


It could be faster, have a bit more snap.

If you're running at a steady framerate (looks like 15fps), try setting it to 30fps (proper TV framerate) and then setting certain frames (specifically the swipe frames where there's a lot of distortion of form) to ones, with the rest on twos.

thanks a lot for the advice. Adjusted the fps to 30 and worked on delaying some parts, and on the squash thing, here's a quick approach:

it seems to run slower than it should on the browser...
