i really like the moving face expression of the dude in your test, and i also like the use of tweens in your walking sequence.
(or was it FBF?)

good work.

PS: the bouncing ball was really good as well, but the other ones were more complicated+cool in my book

That's actually a real compliment. BB10 knows everything there is to know about animating a ball. Comes with the character.

well, thats great, because i personally prefer FBF sequences than tweens.
(even tho tweens are more efficient+helpful in some occassions, so use both things in any case/animation).

Looks pretty good overall, except for maybe the hand. These are obviously rough frame layouts but i would suggest using a reference for the final lines just to kind of get the anatomy of it down.

I noticed as he presses the button you kind of have the final frame drawn and then jerk it over for one frame before bringing it back to the left. You've got a nice sweeping motion as he leans towards the button, if you were to extend that motion by just one keyframe, having him lean into the button fully before leaning back, I think it would make the button press more impactful and just kinda look better.

pour exemple: http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/d9e1effcc8b65be794509cda9affe4e6

or maybe an additional quick movement of the arm, in which case you wouldn't even have to draw an entirely new keyframe

its a good animation, i like the fluid animation (and its speed), but i have some remarks:

the hand needs to be redrawn in a more realistic way:

see pic below:    (my drawing/version is in shown in right side of the pic (in red), check the pic+zoom in if needed).

i hope that i am (even in a tiny bit) helpful.

interesting walking loop.

i really like how his hands+head are moving/tilting as he walks...

this sequence has a nice flow.

was it FBF? i think it was.
perhaps you could make a new sequence that would combine the character's leg movement, along with the hands+head movement/tilting (already designed) sequence.
also, a suggestion: the torso could also move slightly upon movement? (no need to do it, just throwing an idea here).

tl;tr great walking loop, i liked it alot. keep up the GOOD work!
