Someone pointed out in the test animation that the run cycle for the doctor in that scene looked more like a horse than a pony. So I redid it about 3 times to try and get it right. Now I'm looking for some feedback.
it is not looking bad, but the neck seems a bit long and his hoof should be solid and stiff, not as...well, bendy and his back leg seems a bit smaller. try making the legs seems like one motion. it may just be me. however, you are the artist...the final critique should be you to decide. also, is there another piece where he has his head? it may be more helpful to give a better critique.
and please note that this is my first and only critique i have ever done. and i said earlier...you are the artist. what happens is up to you and only you.
what is going on with his back legs? XD When i animate something, or even just drawing someone in motion, i try to think of how their weight would be balanced, how they would be kicking/pushing off of the ground, you know just to give it some gravity. My problem with this is it kind of looks as if he's just floating and flailing in place, and the back legs dont seem to pick up quite as much as they should.. im not sure, but something just seems plain off with it
I hope i helped a little? good animation though, either way, im pretty new at this stuff myself!
Seems fluid enough to me, though I don't know the difference between a horse stride and a pony's. Don't they all stride the same in the show? But I digress, this is well animated and suits the Doctor. I like how the mark moves with the body.
