    Never turn your back on Fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed.

    You're doing all right, keep up.

    One thing you could do is draw from life. It's visible how you have reproduced the quirks of the Posemaniacs model quite closely. You don't want to internalize THAT, so draw real people. Even photos would be better than cheap, inaccurate 3D models. But best of all, join a life drawing group.

    Thank you for your advice, I do agree drawing from life is the way to go in trying to capture the movement of form. I've actually been involved in figure drawing workshops recently with live models to work from http://www.conceptart.org/showthread...4#.UV6Viasjqj4

    ^^^^sketchbook with recent stuff, hope to update more tomorrow

    I really need advice though on these particular figure drawings. Mostly involved with perspective, the elipse, cylindrical form in perspective, and foreshortening...I feel like I'm making my models way too flat by simply not understanding how it would be in three dimensional space, and also still not understanding how the spine is the place holder for the larger portions of the body like the torso, legs and head.
    I really would like to know what I'm doing wrong here is all, and draw overs would be awesome for crit

    If that's what you are after, then track the form with helper lines. Don't just trace contours and guess the position of "balls" on joints; track center lines, cross-section lines, muscle directions, anything that helps you understand the form. Draw through the form - what you don't see is as important as what you do see, so if you need to mark a helper line that's behind the body, do it. Use measurement lines outside the figure too - angles, parallels, envelopes, to check the proportions.

    By the way: Work in pencil. Tablets are awful for sketching. Don't make your task harder than it already is.
