Hi Dynasty, I really like your shading on your drawings, it's very controlled, but the anatomy is really exaggerated, kinda like comic books. I think the best way to learn anatomy well is from drawing from life rather than from comics or anime, since they tend to distort the proportions and stuff (I started off drawing from anime, and it was really difficult afterwards to figure out whether I was drawing in proportion or not).

Umm, I don't think looking up photo references on the Net would be a good idea unless you let your parents know beforehand, so you might wanna try buying an anatomy book to look at from at art section of your bookstore or something.

Anyways good luck with it and keep drawing!

I agree with moon. I too learned from drawing anatomy from comics and anime. Another problem that accurs and what happened to me is that you only get good at drawing charcters in the pose that your used to doing in comics.

It looks like you are trying to draw the muscles. What I mean is you drawing the outline as you go using the muscles as a refference. Try skectching out a VERY ruff sketch of of the form of what your are trying to draw. Like the pic you did were the guy is flexing his muscles. Do a ruff sketch of the upper torso and head.

Once you get a ruff sketch done then you can start adding details and such.

Also, I use a program called daz 3d. Its a freeware version of poser kinda. Its great for posing characters and using the camera to get unique angles.
