I have decided to pick up the scraps of the long forgotten Bardock Z2 project and try to create a full fledged character, using Balthazar's wonderful sprite as a base. I am a beginner to intermediate spriter and am hoping to improve my skills, I hope this endeavor will turn out fruitful!

Thank you, do you think he should be a very aggressive character, or focus on grabs? Either way, he will probably be the most physical out of the Z2 lot.

focus on animating your basics for now, if you get through them I can give you a hand later down the line defining those.

ok, just am a bit anxious, I been working on this for a bit but I was too scared to release anything. As for spriting, can do!

I think you should try to animate the legs more. Like make them bounce up and down as he does. They look pretty static imo

Just saying, but I don't get why the shading on his legs shift so much when his legs are staying completely still.

I think the main problem is the way you're trying to animate a subtle movement. The whole movement of the legs is unnecessary and the result is that, even if TECHNICALLY you did a great job, the animation looks unnatural and shaky.
The problems occur because you try to move every pixel of every frame.
If you observe the transition between the third and the fourth frame you'll get what i mean. The fourth frame should just stabilize the motion and adjust the inertia of the body. It should be the frame where the whole body "stops" for a second to regain an upward acceleration. Both legs move way too much and you can see it just by looking at their outlines. Does this make more sense?

I see what you mean, and initially  had a lot more frames but thought it was too slow, I will get back to the stance once I finish the light punch

Why don't you combine both stances together?  Use Zero's arm animations and thigh plate animations on your animation?

Zero's edit looks good. The face could still use some work and the hair needs some animation.
