Basic Figure help/Foreshortening?

Hi, im going back to sixth form in spetember, and wanted to get a basic understanding of the human figure. I chose to look at Loomis's Figure drawing, which goes into enough detail for me to get a good idea of body placemnts.

So far i can now draw male/female at 8 heads high in front, back and side views. Iv just started to try a turned figure looking to one side with the whole body, but im finding it really hard! Here are some of the quicker drawings iv done, and what im stuck at, any advice would be great! >>>>>
Please bare in mind these are very quick, as im just trying to get basic outlines of the body and not in depth in anatomy. And please ignore the faces! Anyone know how to do this while keeping with the lines at 8 heads high?
