such a lovely animation!  The way he moves his shield is super-sweet

Love the beard!

Reminds me a bit of Simon/Honedew from the Yogscast just with a viking helmet on. I didn't see it without the beard animation but it looks great.

Thanks, i try to accomplish your suggestions.
An bouncing of the Helmet i already tried but it seemd a bit to much.

 this is cute ! there are a number of secondary animations that could be added/improved, like a slight helmet bounce as he walks. also some slight tilting of the sword and shield would habe been cool. ( in the vertical axis for the shield. if you want to give it that extra layer of ambience you could animate the reflection inside metalic parts like the helmet. You could try adding a lil hueshift into blues in the dark greens and yellow for the highlights. Also, some colored/selective outlining could lighten up that somewhat riggid black outline.

keep it up, I like that cute approach a lot and I can definitely see him running around in a game, so you got that spot on. Welcome to pixeljoint. :3

 Hey, thanks. Yea the beard was way to static. Now hes flying around a bit.

 The beard could use some animation, but otherwise I absolutely love it!
