    how are you drawing these? is it from a reference or your imagination? that information would help.

    Do you frame your art work before you draw, i saw a little bit of that in the hand you have. are those circles a representation of the joint or of the muscle between the joints?

    it's good that you're trying a variety of pieces to the whole, like the eyes and noses.

    Here are some anatomy books by a guy named Bridgman. They can be found here
    and also look at these links here

    Thank you, i very much appreciate you. Um, most of the bodies u see on the wider pieces are from references, u can see that some are labelled if they aren't cut off.

    Yeah, i frame my heads before i draw, but i do the body and such from my head.

    Thank you for the links

    Keep them comin. The more you practice the more you'll see improvement. I also suggest you start doing some life studies. Those really helped me get a better understanding of how the human body looks. A hour a day of those studies will really help and you'll look up one day and realize how far you've come. Keep up the good work and thanks for the comments in the SB

    I think you'd probably find some benefit in your more finished sketches if you studied some of the basics like proportion, and mastering the basic geometric skeleton, as can be found in Loomis' Figure Drawing for all it's worth, you can find scans of the pages HERE but if you're willing to do a little hunting on Google, you'd probably find the whole thing as a pdf. But to start with, try and hunt down the pages which show the human figure simplified as a ribcage, skull and arms and legs, and practice with that. Once you find that easier, you'll probably find interpreting your reference images easier. From that point, you can focus on bits at a time, which is pretty much how I got my grasp on anatomy. But keep up the practising, it'll start paying off eventually, just make sure you have some understanding of what it is you're drawing... it's underlying structure.

    Hey there
    Don't stop drawing!
    When you really start to draw pay reallllly close attention to your reference. Spend at least an hour on each of your drawings if not more as well. Humans are really hard to draw, try drawing simple things right now.

    Loomis and Bridgeman are both good suggestions, and just more from reference and life.

    Do you 'block' out the main areas of the anatomy first?
    Eg: sphere for the head, oval/rectangle ribcage etc. I think you'll benefit greatly from starting with a basic stick figure and building these up from there. Don't worry about details until the basics are in the right place and in proportion.

    .... and have fun!
