It's probably just the perspective and foreshortening ones.

Because I've been getting a lot of use out of those figure drawing sites, I've added another I've been visiting.

Retraining myself to draw better circles and I'm pretty sure I just threw my shoulder out (no I didn't). Also REALLY hard to do this on a tablet without a screen but that may just be the hardest part right now

and... naturally what I do draw requires plenty of circles OH BOY
