Not bad, Not bad at all!
One of the things I do like about this very much is the sketch shading and consistency of style you kept throughout making this, however some minor details can change everything, and some of those I have noticed.

The animation is somewhat glitchy at times and could flow a bit better, the jump at the end is related to this as is the run cycle in which it appears she freezes, and easy way to avoid this is to run through the animation in preview mode and then pick some of the frames which are more or less longer than the rest.

I really do like your style though, please do keep it up :) I'll be expecting more great animations from you!

This seems to be an overall very energetic animation. The eyes seem to pop open so suddenly however it strikes me as a bit odd to see them pop open so quickly near the end there. The hair movement is gorgeous and flows nicely except from one frame where her hair length seems to lose it's constancy for about one frame; Also her bangs appear to transition from a strange edged cut to a shaggy/spiky cute in several frames. Likewise during the jump her feet seem to just shrink in perspective a bit too much mid jump. The only thing I could think of there would be to add a few blur frames to make the transition of perspective a bit smoother. Mid jump her bow's size consistency seems to get larger than it's usual proportions. The skirt of the dress and the arm movements are very well done so are the first few steps of the character. The skate board seems to also disappear for a fraction of a moment. Overall I'd say this is still a good animation. Of coarse it could be refined but your key frames definitely tell the story well. I'm looking forward to seeing more animations done by you and hope to encourage you to keep up the good work!

Really pretty. Good animation, great design. The distance between the frames is really invisible, I like it.
Uh, azdrawing 2 is better than flash? You like it?

I play too much League XD

For her first two steps I hear "Crit, Crit" then when she lands on the skateboard, I screamed, "BOOM!"

Fantastic animation by the way :D Very dynamic movements and the character is uber cute as well.

Good work, it's nice and fluid, the hair and clothes seem to move with the body. If you can keep certain things consistent such as keep the face and skateboard and possibly add more in-betweens this will be even better.

I notice she is running on a surface slightly higher than where the skateboard is and it seems she is running in front of the skateboard. Is that intentional?

Really cute, I like it in general, but the only thing that bothers me is that it's a bit choppy from time to time. In general, it's adorable, though ; u ;

I can't animate. Like, at all.

The only problem I have with the animation is that it's too fast for my eyes to keep up with. ;u; Maybe that's just my problem, but I always feel like they are too fast. Other than that, they are lovely.

Oh wow, I really like how this looks though a few things throw me off a bit. I'm no expert, these are just personal opinions but,

I think another breakdown between frame 24-25 might help that a bit easier when she's jumping and then going into the pose where she goes down to the skateboard. Also, Not sure if its just me, but was frame 26 unfinished? I see lines for the face and the other half of the right arm past the elbow seems to be missing. I also seem to be thrown off with that first real stride around 15-18. I think it might be 16 or 17. I'd probably take one of them out or edit it.

Just are just things i'd try out but like i said, i'm no expert or really anything xD; As i mostly do 3D animation and am just a student : >.

I think it looks great though overall though!

LOL thanks for taking time to look at each frame 8DD and almost half the frames a kinda unfinished. I just wanted to get the movement down and unfinished frames aren't very noticeable when you play it into a gif QuQ
Thanks for the input. I haven't taken any animation classes yet (hopefully i will soon OTL) so I don't know anything about how movement flows in animation ^^ I guess I'll just have to keep practicing OTL

oh not a problem * v*
I'm kind of forced to look at my own stuff at a frame by frame basis to see if there's mistakes so its kind of a habit now xD; I'm still no expert or anything xD;

ahhhh. Unfortunately, I can only see gifs over net/when i view it on DA. On my mac when i save gifs to look at, They display as all the single images you drew, so i have to hold down the arrows to make it look like i'm viewing it as a gif xD

and as far as classes, thats awesome * v*
If you've not taken any, i'm sure you'll be like mind-blowing awesome once you do! :>

my animator teachers always recommended preston blair books and there's one i have now to look at walks/runs/sneaks, etc called The Animator's survival Kit by Richard williams :>
