    Hey mate, nice that you decided to start studying anatomy. Before focusing on the individual muscles it might be a good idea to break the body down into larger simple shapes.

    Some of the people who teach this (construction) method are Vilppu, Hampton and Bridgeman. I escpecially recommend Hamptons book "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention" if you are just starting out with studies. The skull from you thumbnail is nicely done and seems a little "Vilppu-ish". So if you are already reading / watching his stuff, way to go.

    Maybe also post some gesture drawings from live?

    Hi, Thanks for the reply Kapri! I've seen a video by Vilppu once and that is when I drew the skull. I found it incredibly helpful but I've forgotten a lot of what it taught me. I just bought the book Michael Hampton: Figure Drawing Design and Invention though, thanks for the recommendation!

    Here are a couple of life drawings I did the other day, I haven't done life drawing in about 2 or 3 years so I am a bit rusty.

    Here are 2 portraits I did from the same class:

    I tried to keep in mind the stuff I learned from the Vilppu video while drawing these.
