Thanks murambi, unfortunately I don't have any money to spend. I was laid off from my job so I've been job hunting for quite awhile now. I'll get it figured out though nonetheless. There are plenty of walk cycles on youtube that I can use for reference. Here's some more progress..still have a long ways to go though. Animation is much tougher than I had anticipated. I know the outcome I want, it's just a matter of getting there hehe.
