That's it. I'm starting a sketchbook
My browser crashed right before I submitted so now I have to do the whole thing again.
Let's start with a bit of a backgrounder: I've been drawing for a few years now, on and off (mostly off) and I'm trying once again to get myself to draw everyday. Anyways, I recently got Loomis' "Figure Drawing for all its Worth" and Bridgeman's "Complete Guide to Drawing from Life" and have been practicing with them.
Hopefully this thread will keep me motivated since, with almost everything I do, I tend to lose interest after a few days and completely stop for quite some time.
Anyways, please let me know of any tips that you might think would be useful for a novice and let me know of any exercises that could be helpful.

Figure drawing is always a good idea. I think you've pretty successfully utilized it so far cos I don't see any critical anatomical issues. The subjects really seem to have a presence about them.
Don't stop drawing!

Drawing characters in perspective just broke my brain. Second picture is without any ref.
Busy weekend coming up, but hopefully I'll be able to keep up my streak.

For digital sketching your work is very clean and smooth, I like your studying of the bones!
now if I may say a little critique, it's just that for most of your picture, your hips and torso seem to be a little too big, compared to the arms..
