And I also agree on his shoulder being a tad bit straight, but it isn't as straight in a perfect profile shot as it looks from this angle. He actually has really nice, swingy gaits -- nothing extravagant, but we normally get 7s for gaits under collective marks. So not quite 45 degrees, but not terrible either.
Same with his neck, isn't as short in reality, it's more on the average-to-slightly-longer side. In retrospect this really isn't as great a picture as I thought it was ...
But I pretty much agree with you on all counts. Thanks a lot for taking the time to comment! I'm really grateful.
