Just go to geocities or angelfire or one of those sites that offers free web pages, register, and upload it to their server. then you can just post the link to your file in the forums. hope that helps.

No need to bump hourly. Maybe the next day. Patience goes a long way.
Actually I'm suprised more people didn't get to this one. I think it looks pretty good.
A couple of things that might help out.
-Angelfire is usually terrible for pop up ads. It usually opens several widows. I will sometimes avoid angelfire links because of that. I prefer geocities because the ads come up and kind of look like part of the page layout. Just a personal preference thing. geocities lets you feel like you're in control of the ads more, instead of things exploding in advertisements all over your screen. Actually this time I didn't get any which was good.
-The character is a little far away from the camera. If you really want detail crit of your walk cycle, do another one where the character doesn't transform position (move anywhere, walks on the spot) The one you have is good to see that he's not sliding around, but the motion will be better reviewed up close.

Hi Stevenbhn, your stuff looks great!
My favorite animation of yours has to be the test run, I could see the character running away from something really big that wants to crush him. Good stuff :D
Your jumping animation needs more work though. He should linger at the hight of the jump a little longer. It would also help to know which app your using, so any that are familiar with it could give you tips.
In your stroll animation, the arms look like their jumping around, but I love the blinking eye's, the swaying from back and forth is also really good, especially the head.
for the sneak, the thing that looks strange to me is the fact that the toes are sliding across the ground, his knee's are also popping (controller is moved too far and the joints cant compensate moving to that position smoothly). It would be nice if you could re-render that one too, cause there is some flickering going on :(
The jaunty walk is awesome, just smooth out the movement of the hands a bit and it's great IMO.
Keep letting us know when you got new ones, and when you get a job at pixar ;)

Very niec dude, that character has... character... lol
I like it cause its a nice simple model, but the movements are mostly nice and smooth, keep up the good work... all i can say is just watch it over and over, if you see anything wrong, all ya gotta do is fix it, ez pz... he he

Hi i have took alot of advise and tried to iron out my animations a bit. i know there is still work to be done on them.
i need to get my character doin something meaningful and entertaining. any ideas or suggestions on how to improve my stuff would be great.

I think your doin' fine mate. Any meaningful idea for an animation should probably come from you to be honest. Perhaps you could storyboard a short piece, maybe a little chase sequence or something, but on a simple set and cocentrate on the animation. I think your anims are all pretty decent, some, like the run, are better than others. There seems to be a litlle bit of skating at the end of the jump anim. the foot seems to slide unnaturally. And the sneak one could be better, the foostps are right, but I think the posure could be improved to be more sneaky.
