    male figure.

    this is just one.
    but I was pretty proud after I finished
    I think this deserves a different thread than my hands thread

    [and so you know I HATE drawing feet. I have no problem with hands though.]

    The legs need to be lengthened by quite a bit (unless this guy is some kind of hobbit-hybrid). Also, draw the hands and feet. You don't get better at it by just leaving them out.
    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.

    hahaha at least you draw better legs than me XD

    The left arm seem a bit too out, move it towards the body until it's close to the breast.
    Left leg is okay.
    Try move the right leg towards the left, since to me, it looks like he's in a walking position, taking small steps.


    good luck, here's a modification of your draft XD

    Your lines are too broken up. Try to get continuous strokes - it makes a difference. Also, sketching is best done with a paper and pencil.

    Ok first thing you need to do is to build your figure.
    Part of the problem it seems is you are drawing it as an outline (or it looks that way from the last attempt)

    Human figure are 7 1/2 heads tall or 8 for heroic, yours struggles to reach 5 1/2.
    I'd suggest you invest in a good anatomy book/ figure drawing book and then start a sketch book on CA.
    Here's a quick paint-over to show you, using your 'drawn' head as the head size.
