thanks for the feedback. I assume its because there are no arms so it doesnt make sense.
Not only. It's too fast also.
When the figure was the kneeling position, it reaching for an item with the right arm that was on the ground. The figure than swifts the weight to the left arm
That's nearly correct way of thinking. But it's still wrong. The arm has to be behind the back, not in front of the body. When I'm trying to sit into this pose, I am falling backwards. I need to use an arm as a support not let me fall backwards. I cannot sit down like that if I put my arm in front - it is not use, that is not where my weight is going to be, understand?
Perhaps the pose is a bit extreme
Not at all.
or I could slow it down because it was quick.
Correct. Also, the hand.
Wow dude I really appreciate you trying the poses yourself. It must be really tiring.
Yes, but it's satisfying because it makes me learn a lot. I urge you to try and pose yourself, this sitting down motion for example. Try it now. Were you falling backwards while trying it? That's what I'm talking about. Whenever you're animating some pose which is not absolutely normal and common (not just standing, not just walking or running), then you have to try and pose yourself before trying to animate that.
I had to also learn to roll over because I had no idea how spin motion even looks.
Had to try it until I understood how it works, practicing right on the floor at my house.
