I think you get the idea ... you don't need any talent to do something good ... just "keep at it until you get it right" - secret of the old masters ... shhh ... don't tell anybody.
I'm experimenting with using only the paintbrush program in Windows. This seems to be better than pencil ... even with just a mouse ... at least for crude placement, body mass, body length work.
And ... nothing beats drag & drop for shifting objects around, lengthening arms, etc. Before, with pencil, if I decided that the head was in the wrong position, I had to redraw the whole thing to place it properly. Now I just cut off the head and drag it ... and ... I get to experiment with different positions.
This will continue to change & develop. By the time the whole thing is through, you'll be tired of it ... but I won't because i'm doing it.
PS ... At this point you should be saying, "I still think this guy doesn't know what he's doing". OK, we'll see _________ ;o)
