Welcome to concept art mate! Looking good so far, keep it going, and don't worry about your english, it's all good! Looking forward to see your progress in future.
PS. Some suggestions on how I can draw muscle better?!
If your just starting out, learning anaomy is overkill, its like learning to drive a car by seeing how the engine works. Start with getting proportion down and blocking in figure with basic shapes like boxes and tubes. Once you get good at that and can do it every time, then you can start building the muscles on top of the basic shapes.

Sounds like a good idea, to make it more simple and then build it up from there.
So thank you very much
And also take the time to draw stuff you really want to draw, even if it comes out looking awful right now Studying is important and will inform all your work of course, but what good is it if you never get around to drawing what you want?
That said, draw lots from life! Just draw people around you, so you don't just memorize bone names but actually figure out how humans move. I read in the Ward Kimball thread that you're interested in animation (I happen to study at Animation Workshop, which is why I stumbled in here ) and the most important thing you can do to improve your animation is to study people. Look how they move, observe their little mannerisms, try to catch the gestures, both bold and subtle. That'll be a real asset if you do decide to go for animation.

Yes has also been a bit tired of drawing anatomy. has a plurality of stacks of papier with the anatomy drawings. So also began thinking about drawing what I think would be cool to draw. But it's always nice affirmative when others reminds one of it. so many thanks for that.
And I must have taken courage to me, and then go into the city with my sketchbook and try to draw people I see. although it is not beautiful drawings.
And must say I'm somewhat jealous of you that you Studying at the Animation Workshop
I would like to ask you some questions regarding Animation Workshop. if you have time to answer them by email. are you talking Danish or English
Great start, try some gesture drawings if you can't draw from life, then you can work proportions and poses really quickly
