    low-med beginner leaning more to low. You need to set up camp in the tutorials section for a while. Try and focus on tests and keep away from FX.
    We need more robots, people. WHERE ARE THE DAMN ROBOTS?

    There's a few little details you need to watch out for, for example, when moving the head down, it's looks a little odd if there is absolutely no movement in the body. Also there is one crucial thing new people like you forget about posing, it is odd to have one foot in front of the other when standing still, so in a side view animation, the legs have to be in the same place, instead of one in front of the other, I'm not sure about how well I have explained it, but I suppose I've done my best pointing out the biggest posing flaw. Also, you should ease this animation, this is when you don't end a movement suddenly, instead of making the head stop, make the head make a smaller and smaller movement throughout a few frames, this will make your animations look more effective.
    Low beginner. Solid.

    Just "beginner" would be enough, in case you forgot.

    As Waffles said, you definitely need to read a bunch of tuturials considering you just started Pivot. You basically lack all of the basics plus this kind of animations(OVER POWERED with a scarf) aren't really appriciated in here. Do you see how most of the times the figures are static and not moving an inch? Try to move all of the handles at once each frame to avoid stiffness. Notice how peole move in real life and you'll see that body part is moving even when you're standing. As for spacing, It's completely off. The movements lack fluidity wich means the movements don't flow together at all. Keep in mind that physics also count in animation. For example, a guy never flies from getting hit by a hammer.
    To make it more simple to you, all you gotta do is to consider the basics after learning them in the tutorial section and phyics since animations won't look as interesting if therer isn't any weight within the characters.
