This is my first attempt ever of doing a patch; I could use some advice. x)

right now the only thing I can find a little off is the right hind leg

the other two are moving so fast, but the right one moves once per every 2 frames? Try making it so that one moves at least once every frame.

It might just be the animation's fault, i don't know.

But amazing first patch! <3

The legs are a little jerky, and like Mina said, it looks as if the hind leg drags for a second and then moves, then drags some more.

Don't forget the back has muscles too when the av moves. A mistake I find very annoying in walkabouts is that only the legs move - the back dips, arches and stretches out too, the head bops a little etc. I think Mithril's example links show that as well. Besides the back leg you might want to take the back itself into consideration as well. :)
