Add some expressions to his face. He looks way to happy. Some morphs would be nice. A grunt here and there.

That's cool dude. Maybe you could give him a little bit more sense of inertia... like let him feet go straight down as he begins to move upwards. Then gradually bend the legs back like they are now most of the time... kind of hard to explain what I mean...

Ya mate i understand....the animation is only about 2 hours work so far and just testing motion paths. I'll play with him some more...

One thing thats causeing me some head aches is i forgot there was an expression on his leg to move the root. So when i move the leg his midsection moves. next time no expression=)
