    The basics are the same no matter if you draw digitally or with pencil. Anatomy doesn't change with the medium. You can, of course, get books on how to draw digitally, but that's not going to help you with fundamental stuff like anatomy, form, color and light.

    There is a complete work of bridgeman you can get at barns and noble or books a million. Yes it has the complete muscular and skeletal system. It also has facial features and folds and drappery. Your left side looks better. If you fish through the wiki here you will find all kinds of neat stuff. Thanks

    Hey, there is a complete works on bridgeman. With over a thousand illustrations. It has hands, feet, lips, hips, face, and well everything except the know know parts. It is awsome. I prefer him over hogarth or loomis.

    Bridgman is not the best first choice. You're better off with Sheppard's "Drawing the Living Figure" and an atlas by Ellenberger.

    As for pencil... do whatever you want, but sketching with a tablet is much, much harder than doing it with a pencil. I suppose if you absolutely hate pencils you can take the difficult route, but I don't see any real reason to do that.

    In any case, being versatile and having experience with more than one medium is going to be good for you.

    Work on the anatomy - his proportions are off.
    Again, go look at real armour - there are of pictures online or at the library.
    At the moment your guy couldn't move.
    Plate armour goes on in sections - this might help you…

    Because Armor is shiny you really have to pay attention to the geometric plane changes. Round things have to look round and flat areas have to look flat. Lighting informs these shapes because of the high reflective properties.
    Here is an example I painted from photo ref

    Thanks Venger, which proportion did you mean just so I can check? I think the chest looks big but the plate covering it would have to be big, can anyone point out specific things, I will try to adjust the armour to make it more practical. The chest plate is in one whole piece is that normal?

    Hi, Here's the next stage I'm at. There are some unfinished bits and haven't decided on the background yet. Hopefully the anatomy is ok now? The metal effect is hard to do because it would probably be darker at the bottom of the figure but then it doesn't look so good. Feel free to crit me

    Hmmm... How will he bend with that armor? Generally the breastplate only goes to your waist to allow the wearer to bend a bit and swivel their upper body around. Also the openings leave his sides rather unprotected from stabs and arrows if he raises his arms.

    you could do a lot worse than look at the work of Angus McBride too for reference, he did hundreds of illustrations for the Osprey "Men at Arms" series of books. As I remember there were lots of poses along this line and a host of others too.

    I hope this helps you out in your quest for decent references matey
