    What they said ^

    I recommend, before even doing figure studies, to just practice drawing proportionately-correct people in a simple standing pose. Once you get really used to this, then study some basic anatomy like the placement of the rib cage in relation to the pelvis, etc. I see you were already starting to do this with your skeleton study.

    Also, I think the reason some of your drawings had flawed proportions is because you didn't give yourself enough room on the page. Try buying larger sketchbooks so you can be loose with your lines and maintain proper proportions without running off the page.

    Keep going and you will make lots of progress!

    An update!, I just finished making this and I'm actually very proud of it . Haven't digital painted in such a long time and drawing muscles is one of my flaws . I have a lot of traditional stuff also, but I can't find my power cable for my camera . I will upload them as soon as I find it!

    Hey Woolkid! Keep it up, it is great to see all of your practices on the figure. I wish I was that dedicated early on. I think, because you ask for advice and critique, I have a couple of suggestions. Pay attention to your lines, in a lot of your sketches they could be proved upon by better line design. Choose when to make them thick or thin, or even none existen. Make lines that are interesting and that work together and create rhythm through out the whole piece. Anyways, keep it up my friend.
    Check out my blog! - www.kevynhale.blogspot.com - come and follow the.... prodigy (at least the future prodigy)
    And don't forget the sketchbook! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=270992

    JonoKoi Thanks for taking your time doing that, man It worked

    KevyNah Yeah I wish I could do that, but it's so hard . If I'd like any style of my sketches it would probably like Mike Azevedo, his style is so sick

    Some more studies, the arms are done very quickly, about 4 minutes all of them. But I'm improving my lines and that is good

    Your loomis studies are looking pretty solid. Try applying the knowledge you've gained to some figures from imagination soon to really ingrain that stuff into your brain
    Keep it up
