Here's current personal project that I am working on
Task: Create Amulet of Love and Amulet of Unity for one of the four tribes - Preachers of Unity
Amulet of Love
First direction before Task
Thumbnail from imagination
Amulet design, Setting up correct Perspective, Construction and Composition, Work on Values, Testing Colors
Study for project
Rethink some stuff about project... at this point it's seems too busy
Since the main focus the amulet, I trying to simplify and think in more magical way
Now big things coming - Figuring out luminosity and trying to visualize it
Hope I can handle it...
Started constantly studying

beautiful work and amazing studies! gotta take a leaf out of your book. Are you applying the skeleton to photos you have?

chenga - Thanks!
fatman274 - Thanks a lot! About skeletons - I do something like a reverse engineering
I use photo and on top of it without reference of skeleton trying to understand how the bones were placed inside the human body in certain positions. This realy wakes me up in the morning.
lorehly - Thank You! It means a lot to me!
Also I found something that scrawled back in the middle 2013 just for fun from imagination... I remember how proud I was...
Listen until death comes
Now I am thinking about resurrecting my unfinished old project that i really like even right now
Here is first direction
Here is a second one

Day off to relax and clear my mind
Also I found couple of good sites with 3D anatomy
Not perfect but for the development of spatial thinking quite good
Sometimes better to twirl in 3D certain bones (especially pelvis) or muscles than watch them in three projections
Hopefully to someone come in handy

I will try to do this kind of studies each day regardless of anything
1) Anatomy posing
2) Technically complex object
3) Quick landscape

Improvisation inspired by latest tech studies

your skeletons are great, might i suggest you begin using simpler forms to represent each part of the body, experiment with using different shapes and sizes. Now that you are getting a strong handle of the basic structure you would excel at achieving a wider variety of forms.
My favorite of these is the oval shape since it is both harder to use in some and easy in other as well as making your figures more curvacious when used as a draft layer for more detailed figures later on.
