I am trying to get my self to draw studies more often and have begun studying muscles. Here is some of my recent stuff, hopefully I can keep this going!
Please feel free to give me any critiques or aids. I just want to improve in anyway possible.
Thanks for checking my stuff out!

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.
