It wasn't a serious suggestion - the two frames thing seemed like a stylistic choice - just something I was curious about as a contrast. Just adding those two frames help a lot with conveying motion though.
Experimenting is always good though and I there is alot of things which can be done different!
i suggest making the far leg and arm a darker blue. that would add some depth and separate the limbs. an example would be my avatar. i used the next darkest color in my palette for the far tentacle.
cool character, though. i'd love to do an edit on the animation when i get home
Ok last update on the run animation using your advice + I added the "skirt" which she is supposed to have.
I am really excited how you will change the animation!
