I'm still a mediocre animator, having not produced much content to show. I was wondering, during one of Alan Beckar's Flash Tutorials, if it was okay to always need to go back and replay the videos or look for reference when animating. I mean, I feel a little embarrassed when I have difficulty doing walk and run cycles, or any difficulty doing simple animations like ball bounces.

YES, ALWAYS USE YOU'RE RESOURCES. Whether it be tutorials or references, USE IT. Use them until you perfect whatever skill you want to learn from them. Use them until you're ready to animate/draw without them. There's no embarrassment in trying to learn something you're not good at. What's more embarrassing is claiming you know how to do something, completely failing at it, and then refusing to watch a tutorial on the subject.

It's nothing to be embarrassed about. I'm a Programmer and I have to go back for tutorials about Basic stuff. A lot of people do it and this is the only way others learn.

I'm the one and only.

I'd be more concerned if you didn't go back and look at references haha. It's nothing to be ashamed of, just make sure to give credit if you are rotoscoping something.
