    Slow down, and spend more time on getting proportions right: the size of the circle you chop off the sphere, varies quite a bit. Also, I suggest you add a neck, and don't wait too long adding ears, eye sockets and a nose into your practice. As for doing skeletons, focus on proportions for now, using simple forms for skull, rib case and pelvis, for instance through Loomis mannikin.

    These poor knobby-kneed dudes...

    @eezacque: Per your suggestion, I've started some Loomis mannequins. I will endeavor this week to do many more in more interesting poses.

    I was very careful to try to get the proportions even across the three figures. Alas, I see now where I've gotten the curvature of the spine wrong on the central 3/4 view figure. Oh well, I'll keep practicing.

    I'm going to try to post as soon as I have new work for the time being, to get back into the habit of it. It's been a long time since I shared work online.

    Here are the two images removed from the edited post above:

    Welcome. Enjoy studying. You might also like to draw the bargue plates. check them out and copy them as closely as you can.

    @TheBigItch: I've always meant to tackle the Bargue course, but I've just never gotten around to it. You're right, I really should give it a go. I know it would help me improve.
