    Ow. Either he's got a rubber leg or is in serious, serious pain.

    the lower leg angles (if at all) away from the center of the body. Femur dips in a bit, lower leg dips out a little bit. His torso looks skewed with his neck and head positioned too far to the side, and from the way you're drawing all the muscles it looks like you've been taking most (if not all) your figurative information from comics.

    Don't do that.

    Look at and draw real people.

    I would echo what Jason said, and though I'm still learning the figure, the transition from hips to thighs is particularly strange to me.

    The elbows should meet roughly at the bottom of the ribcage, but that leaves a lot of room between the bottom of the ribs and the top of the pelvis, here... but really his upper arms look very short.

    Hi.

    The overall proportions and likeness are off to a good start. As mentioned above, the anatomical details (muscle structures in particular) could use a bit of fine tuning.

    One thing about Spidey is that when he's swinging through the air, you can make his limbs a little rubbery. I think things such as the inward turned toes don't work as well with a standing pose.

    You might consider moving the elbows away from the torso a little bit to loosen up the pose. Maybe stretch the chest and abdomen downward a bit, and widen the stance.

    Flipping the image horizontally will help you view the pose with fresh objective eyes. In the attached pic, you can see the original image, the flipped version and my quick and dirty stretches and drawovers.

    Hope that's useful.

    Mike

    I think his calfs, ankles and feet are going inwards too much still.

    Ok, the gazillion dollar question:

    What do you want the figure to be doing? He's lookin' like he's ready to boogy, but how ya gonna boogy with pigeon toes?

    Honesty though... this is a really important question. He's got no clear action or purpose to his pose, so it looks really weird. Try to think about what he's doing... then try to do it and see what your limbs do. Don't hurt yourself.

    Better, but he's gone from pigeon-toed to duck-footed. An anatomy tidbit: the degree of rotation of the ankle is much less than that of the wrist, so the direction of the foot will almost always closely follow the direction of the knee

    Just as Elwell said That info helps me from the day I first read about it here on CA.
    And don't do her lower body perfectly symmetrical, it would be boring (and right now, the front side lower part and the rest doesn't seem working together to me). One foot toward us, one in another direction would be much better.
    Your figure definitely improved a lot from the beginning, keep up the good work and improve it more.

    I think you have made a leap forward with this version. The posture seems more natural. There is a new sense of dimension and perspective due to the position of the feet. I think you are doing a great thing by embracing the process of redrawing and revising. Practice brings us closer to our goals. (ugh! I still need so much practice but that's a topic for another thread..)

    I join the person who posted earlier in asking "what do you want to convey?" The posture of most of his body says to me "I'm standing confidently. I am aware of my surroundings, but not expecting to leap into battle" I'm not sure what the arms are conveying however. They are a bit of a mixture of "come at me, bro." "my biceps are so sore after that workout" and "guess which hand the ball is in".

    It's late here. I hope that makes some kind of sense. I like your progress.

    Thanks to all for the support!

    PsiBug: Yes, your feedback has been most helpful. I'm enjoying your sketchbook thread as well.

    I went for the stylized look but ended up bit too realistic for my taste.

    But (again) with accurate anatomy, you can't go wrong!

    Just wanted to pop in to say it's great to see you here Freeman! And awesome that you got help! You should prolly get some reference for the legs though, his left shin is too "s"-shaped, looks a bit broken, and you're having trouble with the anatomy of the far knee and shin.

    Great improvement though! Good luck!

    - Current project <- Crit away!
    - The Whyatt Sketchbook Any tips appreciated

    Whyatt Thrash, hey there... always good to hear feedback from another fine artist.

    Yeah, the legs are something that I need to focus on while I practice anatomy drawings.

    Right now I am doing a 3 page spiderman comic

    Spidey gets better and better...
    His right leg (our left) has a weird shape though... It gets a bit twisted or broken around his knee. I can't really explain but I'm sure anatomy is not right there.
