    Good job of indicating the direction of the forms on this new pic, that top one sorta looks like it was based on a Michealangelo. Be aware of how you use overlap and lines across the forms. On the two on the top right, things are described with cylinders so the perspective/direction of form becomes obvious. The guy on the bottom left looks flat because he isn't described with such clear forms. I'll also crit your profile ribcage on the first picture: You have the cervical spine filling in all the way to front of the sternum, there needs to be room for the throat. I think the simplest way to represent that area would be one line for the top ribs, one line for the manubrium, one line for the body of the sternum, then a curved line for the bottom of the ribs, so you would wind up with a line with three angles.

    nice work phoenix..i am also new to the art form and am also learning.i think for a beginner u r doing a gr8 job..to add more shape and proportion to your drawings i think its better to use a combination of cylinders and boxes..anyway u got to experiment and what you see right is right...keep practising and good luck

    Getting better but what I would say is try and build things up abit more using quick tone's and shading, I need to do it my self but what I found is that if you do something in line and you think its rubish if you carry on with it, it might turn out alright.

    nice studies, your definately improving a lot.
    Just make sure you watch your axis of symmetry when drawing your faces, on your first page the mouth was positioned a bit off centre sometimes.
