    You need reference, is what you need. I just had a peek at your sketchbook -- your latest batch of life drawings was several notches more sophisticated than anything you're doing from imagination. Which says you need to feed stuff into your imagination with more chunks of reality.

    If you can't get anyone to model for you, put your camera on a tripod and pose for both figures yourself. Nice strong directional light source. It'll make a world of difference.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
