Hi there Tanicdesigns, i think you should try to develop some structure first for your drawings to be able to build shapes in a more harmonic way. So far they seem like modules stuck together, if you know what i mean. The muscles don't behave as a whole, but as spare parts stuck together, perhaps because you are trying to define them individually. Starting with some stick figures to get a natural pose and understanding of proportions can be a very interesting excercise and very fun. This can help you a lot with your studies. Its a really big database with tons of images related to anatomy that will serve you well.

The girl sitting seems like an interesting excercise as well, but try to get a better understanding of the human body before jumping into pieces with complex elements such as clothing. I hope this helps you . Good luck.

I think the problem of jumping right into tablet is that it actually lets you erase without trace. Pencil gesture painting is quite important imo, because it lets you focus in getting a shape resemblance without caring for tidiness or perfect lines, and it can open a path for interesting detailing according to the shapes you get from there, mostly random stuff that can later on serve as a kind of base for detailing. At least thats how i see it.

What matters is to gradually get an understanding of your own ideas without caring for excessive detail straight from the beginning. Even with a tablet you can achieve that, just that the temptation of erasing constantly to get perfect shapes is bigger, but you also tend to limit yourself. Im not a pro, but what i try to do is make a simple gesture drawing on a paper, then scan it and refine it on the comp, and if some interesting shapes pop up, to get some advantage of them to have potential detail. It has worked for me quite fine, though im also willing to experiment with other methods. Just keep in mind that having a strong base will help you avoid correcting tons of times later on. Stick figures and gesture drawing ftw !

You can extend the canvas to the side and then use the linetool to draw horizontal lines from important features to the other side of the canvas to use as guides. Hold the Shift key and drag if you want perfectly horizontal or vertical lines.
Usually, I just take the front view and make it a separate layer with low-ish opacity (about 10-20%), and then paint the side view under it. This way I don't have to figure out which lines point to what, and I can actually see every little detail without haivng to draw a guide for it.
Before starting that though, sketch a quick side view to get the side proportions... stuff like how far back the arms are, wide the head is from the side, stuff like that. It's easy to make a boring side view when working just from the front view. Make sure to make it interesting.
