    Lots of Loomis Mannequins, love some critiques

    I finally looked at 'Figure Drawing for all it's worth', and I really like it. I've been focusing on the mannequin sketches over the past few days. I really want to get my figure drawing in shape, so I'd appreciate as many crits as you can give me. I started off drawing a proportions 'ruler' and using perspective heavily, but I just found the perspective (specifically two-point) to be awkward and time consuming, so I stopped with it. Should I have?

    EDIT: Whoops, sorry about the hand sketch in one of them. I forgot it was in one of my scans.

    This is a nice start, but most of these mannequins are badly off balance. Remember to keep weight distribution and balance in mind when drawing out these skeletons. That's the biggest issue I see right now.

    You should be able to draw a line through the center of mass, and have equal weight distribution on each side of that line. Just something to keep in mind.

    Keep it up though! These studies are definately a good start, and will be very beneficial in learning to draw figures.
