Hya

Looks mostly good apart from the vertical movement - seems too much unless you are exagerating.

Too stiff. Remember bouncing ball: Should be smooth-- hanging in the air at the top of his stride. Bend the wrists and feet for follow-through. This will loosen him up.

Re: Run Cycle..Test

yeah, not feeling the weight. Doing more with the legs would help. Straight out, then straight when contacting ground, then the weight of the body cause the knee to bend, then the legs push back to straight as they push off, then it bends again as the energy flies up behind, then bends tighter as it swings fast passed the other leg to once again be thrown out straight in front.  Same with the arms, they look like they have two poses, consider where they are at all points of the run and how the different weights of the different parts of them affect how each part moves.

Re: Run Cycle..Test

The great news is that it is obvious what you are trying to show... a very hard run.

Without more context, it is not clear what else you are trying to convey I guess.   If he is stiff from fright, running from something chasing him, the facial expression does not match, and seem static.  He also looks tired, but is running very hard with very high leg lifts.   These kinds of contrasts detract from the fact that you do have some basics of some very believable motion.

Here's a help:  http://www.biomotionlab.ca/Demos/BMLwalker.html

Study the points... watch the shoulders... and notice that your model looks off-balance, too far forward.  It might be ok to lean into a run like that at the start, but to continue would mean you would fall over.  Making things change important for conveying a complex thought.   Yes, he's moving, but what is really changing?   Is he scared?   Is he tired?

Lastly, I noticed that the entire model, feet and all, move vertically all at the same time, with the feet only touching the ground in the very center of the run cycle.    Real people can't bounce like that.  It almost looks like he is suspended by a string, and running in the air...     The feet should contact the ground, and then there should be some relative motion between the feet and the hips... with the legs stretching out.

Make a video, if you can, of someone running...  would help too.
