You really dialed in the walking gait in the last take. Maybe lean the figure back a little next time so he doesn't look hunched over?

I hope there's a sweet action fight scene video in the works!

Yeah, it's the first instructable I've attempted. Me and my friends are working on a series, and we hope to have a lot of neat fight scenes. And thanks for the input.
