Nice progress; I especially like the ninja.
As far as your female studies go - do you tend to just draw the outlines? I would suggest starting with a base of blocked shapes (probably easier if you have a tablet with which to work, otherwise I recommend trying it with traditional media to get a feel for it). I find it also helps quite a bit to add shadows - the forms and musculature become more evident that way.
Keep it up, man.
Nice amount of figure studies you have going there Keep it up and you'll be progressing by leaps and bounds!
These are looking good. They show a nice sense of balance and weight.
Someone already mentioned it but you may want to attempt getting the mass of the figure blocked in in several different ways rather than only focusing on the outlines. Try a couple as lose gestures and maybe a few by focusing on blocking in the main shapes of the figure. Negative space drawing and focusing on the silhouette is another good exercise to help wrap your brain around the forms.
Keep em coming man, you're on the right track!

I wanted to clean up and revive this sketchbook. I will post my practice work here every couple of days.
I have been doing 25 of these 1 minute gesture drawings at the start of my day. Here are the first 175 gestures.
It's been mentioned here before, but construction needs to be your main focus at the moment, and that means stepping back and busting out some solid perspective studies for a bit. Even if it seems boring and tedious, studying this will be the BEST way to push your art light years forward from now. Keep up the good work.
@MrFrenik: Everything has perspective so I'm not sure of the best way to go about studying it specifically. I will keep it in mind.
@Elias Leonard: Thanks, I'll try to be active.
I had a week of these saved up, which brings the total number of gestures to 350.
Trees, trees everywhere.
