looks good.
but the body does not seem to lead anything.
by that i mean it move independent of the legs , arms , i hope u see what i mean.
there seem to be a jump when it nears the cycle going to the first frame (might be the resolution or codec) but eithr way, when i make such cycles, (i.e. a 32 frame long) i end the cycle on frame 31, because at frame 1 and 32 the poses are the same, there might be either a pop or a lag from last pose to firs

well I think it nice....only thing I would change is more swing in the arms... if you let him swing his arm just a little bit to the side (while he takes a step) than automaticly you need to adjust the back a little so that would give it more characteristic walk...I think...

are you planning to do more with it ?
