Lightbulb Anatomy/Cloth Level-Up - Phil Mehr SB

Hey all, figured I'd get a sketchbook going as I really want to push my Anatomy/Cloth skills further - right now my anatomical knowledge is pretty dire XO

Been working on a japanese character this evening, going for a lean build so not too muscly. I'm sure there are quite a few glaring issues so please point them out and I will address them as best as I can Cheers!

Made some proportional changes, worked some more on the hands. Still lots to do, any C&C would be great

This may sound a little fruity but... you need to look at more naked men. Specifically anatomy charts and male models. Here's a link to a set of anatomy charts for the torso.

The advantage of diagrams from medical sources is that they are not overly exaggerated, they tend to be of "normal" looking healthy people. Once you know what goes where, you can accentuate whatever you like without it looking too unrealistic.

Your arms are way too long

I agree with Scote with the arms but I personally think it's the forearm area, also the upper body seems a little short to me also.

Sorry Scote, what I meant was the biceps looked fine to me, it was just the forearm that made everything look too long...

Tried to address some of the issues mentioned and changed some proportions, still trying to keep the guy quite lean with some definition. Please keep crits coming, could really use them

Scote - Using references from the 3D.SK site, the guys name is 'Hongo Le', fairly skinny dude

I tried to isolate the legs to work on them closely tonight (only get a short amount of free time outside work unfortunately) and have been studying lessons from Spencer and Eaton. I'm hoping to get some Ecorche studies done soon as I think it could really help. Have to work on sharpening my forms as well! Update:
