Super fun and inspiring to watch Mr. Marzullo put his mannequins in such action-packed poses! I like that he doesn't edit out his mistakes, admits his trouble spots, and tackles these tricky positions by jumping in with both feet. This lends confidence to a pose-challenged artist like myself and gives me the boosts I need to push forward when things get tough and I just can't seem to figure out how the heck something works. Such good content, I recommend all his classes. :)
