Great post and this goes great with Ian's energy post as above and I think it is a great idea to understand that time is needed to get a really great pose. I'm believing in this way of thinking because fudging it, or winging it hoping it'll all turn out isn't good enough for me anymore. Putting a lot of effort into your key poses (and breakdowns) the first time around seems a smart act to me even though I'm new to Maya. I keep posting here because I do feel comfortable and accepted here like it's worthwhile being a student and because it's a generously laidout world of animation resources and I can listen in and talk shop.
