Alright man, I had not seen this here.
Lets get started
First off Im going to send you a PDF with some stuff.
in the meantime visit this (http://www.figuredrawings.com/) and get acquainted with some of the resources available there.
First thing we will do is basic shapes. You will study the basic shapes that make up the human figure. You need to do this so that anytime in the near future when you begin to work on a figure, the basic shapes are placed on the paper almost automatically. The basic shapes are the foundation for the basic skeleton, and the basic skeleton is the foundation for the figure. It all lines up.
ps: Im going to need your email, send it via PM, dont post it here.

Ok lets get started then,
On the book entitled "Drawing Cutting Edge Anatomy by Christopher Hart" you will find some simplified forms on page 14. (thats page 14 of the actual book and not the PDF pages).
I want to to take some time and draw them out, all of the poses in the page. Get familiar with the simplified forms that make up the body.
Once you have done that (and posted them here), I want you to do a search for photographs which show full body poses, find at least 10 of them and then draw them out in simplified form. Find the basic shapes that make up their bodies, draw them out, and then post them here side to side with the original pic.
Don't worry to much about the proportions right now, just focus on getting those skeletons/framework/basic shapes down.
The purpose of this exercise is to get used to drawing out the basic foundations before you start to do anything else with your drawing.
Alright, lets get to it!

sorry for taking so long...I hope that you're not too pissed

pissed you say? ...jeesh...take a month to reply why dont you.
Send me an email when you post, i was going to subscribe to this thread and get the automatic email, but I need you to show some iniciative, you still want to continue right?
Ok, the figures are overall, very nice. you got the purpose of the excersise down. There are some perspective issues, but that was not the intent of the study, so I will skip it- more than likely its a result of the pics you used.
You can start doing some proportion studies now. Do a male and a female- front, side, back, other side. make notes on the relation of the proportions of one part of the body to another (the head to chest, head to arm, what lenght, etc) The body is usually measured by head lenghts, so you will probably use that measurement alot. Dont worry too much about the anatomy, right now- work with contours and your shapes, find out where everything goes before you start detailing.
alright man, send me an email or pm when you get this.
