In general what should I work on? I feel like I'm okay with the legs but the upper body/shoulders/arms are really hard to make look natural. I feel like I should study the anatomy of the arms and shoulders. This is also only my second lesson on this website. I have done about 3000 poses on Quickposes so far. I'm going to try to get to 10,000 on both websites.

I like your methodical approach and your clear lines.

I think your feet can improve a lot with relatively minor effort. They aren't very complicated, you just obviously ignored them so far, and will probably pick up the few extra details quickly, once you put your mind to it.

Btw, is Quickposes back in working order? I used the site for the longest time, but a few months ago I had the impression the owner threw a fit of frustration, and kicked out half of the library, probably because of legal pressure. That lead for me to the lessons no longer working properly, as they constantly got stuck with trying to load images that were no longer available. I came to this site after I got the impression, that the Quickpose guy is no longer really willing to support his own site.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm going to start working to improve the feet. Also yes, Quickposes is working just fine but the owner made a lot of changes to the website. He/She got rid of the daily streaks and changed some of the Acheivement Goals. I would've been in the Intermidate Tier but since the goal were changed I'm still in the Improver Tier. But other than that the site works just fine. I juyst wish it had a feedback community like this one.

I must say, TenThousandPoses, I'm digging into your first-ever post of your quick sketches. I really think you must know what you're doing with this goal. I really, very feel that you're quite on the right track, fairly.

Still, I've got one smallest and most insignifigant criticism: I love the gestures, but I'm not getting enough of the most solid construction into your poses thus far. Would you like to do your 30 minutes of 10 minute quick anatomy studies? (3 anatomy sketches emphasizing construction) But wait, there's more! There are a few PDFs to look up: Life Drawing by Bridgman, Life Drawing by Matessi, but you gotta sign up; if you haven't already, and check out a Kindle of Volume 1 of the Walt Stanchfield Animation Drawing Book Series.

The reason why you would, could and rather should is because, it can and will be very, very, very important to you and your current goal, or goals.

Good luck to you, and I hope what've shared are absolutely inspirational and encouraging.
