Hola! y que bueno que te hallas animado por tomarlo en serio, es un buen inicio para tu sketchbook. Me gustan bastantes los diseños con tramados del primer post, sigue trabajando en ellos! También los estudios que estás haciendo, trata de hacer el trazo más limpio, arriesgate. Te aconsejaría que para los cilindros también apliques perspectiva y su construcción. Espero ver más actualizaciones seguidas.
Hey man! Thanks for the super nice comment in my sketchbook!
Improvement is 90% hard work and 10% hating the taste of dissatisfaction.
Also don't worry about improving "fast". Focus on getting quality studies, and the rapid pace will follow on its own. Lets say you have a study that takes you 3 weeks--ok, so it's taking a while, but if you're truly focused and learning during that time, the things you learn will carry with you into the next study and suddenly you'll be making good decisions, quickly, and noticing "fast' improvement. So, focus! Consciously analyze everything you're doing during a study.
You're off to a great start, definitely focus on the basics of simplified shape. I notice in a lot of your anatomy studies, you 're focusing a lot on the torso and fleshing out the details of those muscles, but then your legs and heads just fade into simple lines that aren't the correct shape or proportion. I'd suggest stopping before you flesh out the torso, and start only with the simple shapes of ALL the body parts. This way you can determine right away if the legs or the head are in the right place in relation to what you know best (the torso). Then as you flesh out the torso, the rest of the limbs won't feel like an after thought.
I hope that made sense and wasn't confusing.
Buckle down and do some hardcore studies! You're on the right path!

hala:youre right i flesh the torso right away but that is because i have been focusing on it and ive improved quite a lot im moving into arms and legs but ill keep on doing more and more quick poses and take your suggestion in doing some long ones
well this is what i did two nights ago and yesterday i just inmmersed myself in figure studying im getting alot more confident when drawing a pose that little fear when i saw i kinda difficult one is almost gone i have gained the knowledge to tackle quite alot of my usual problems so thats good right?
of course im still a dimwitt in everything else, being color composition linework anything hahaha guess ill just have to draw draw draw and draw
also im gonna quote a bit of an article that made smile and i totally agree with.
"You will achieve greatness only through an enormous amount of hard work over many years. And not just any hard work, but work of a particular type that's demanding and painful"
