Hope you don't mind but I tried to help out with the "weight" and "bounce" [link] it's pretty sketchy and the tail is off but I hope it helps ^^

Yeah i think some up and down would give it a better sense of weight :)
It's pretty cool though :)

Looking good, though you could make it even better by adding some up-down or rocking motion to the body as the weight shifts from leg to leg :)
Take a look at these two videos for some references [link] [link] (I know that last one says 'animate a horse' but there's some nice ostrich animation going on in there, too)

Cool! Definitely looks like good walk for sure.

I'd say with a trot that there would be a moment where both feet are off the ground, and the frames/legs would move faster. Also there'd probably be a bit of secondary motion with the tail and head.

well it's not fully a trot. as it says in the comments its more of a trot/walk, not quite a trot, but a bit fast for a walk.

Beautiful animation, but what is a Greater Nocturne?
