You have clean lines, which is nice, but you should really study anatomy of the whole body and its proportions

All of your characters are very, very, flat. There's almost no depth to these characters, they need some three-dimensional aspects and some dynamics to their poses. One can tell you're using lined paper as a crutch to keep the characters "proportional", you really need to stop doing that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you draw the body without planning ahead what to do, that's not really a good idea. Also, about the last drawing, muscles are never that angular, I had that problem a while ago, my suggestion would be to study anatomy, maybe look up some tutorials.

Here's a good tutorial to get you started, from this very site.

Here's where I took it from.

Hmm well to Az, I use line paper kuz it's all i have right now o.0 i didnt even think about using the lines to help untill you said something about it and on the other note, I really always want my poses to be dynamic but they always fall flat once i start drawing :(
and to Pinkelephant, your kinda wrong, i mean i do use a quick skeleton like stick figure of all my characters before i flesh them out, BUT thanks for this tutorial i really like it this is what i got from it though i turned it into my own little tribute to the captain

Well as long as you've got the lined paper, use it to measure, 3 spaces for the head or whatever, because, although it's already better, most features have wrong sizes. (What I notice mainly is that his head is too big and his whole legs are too small)

Here's what you really need to mind (lazily copy-pasted from that tutorial)
Spoiler:

Shoulders are a Head and a half from the top. Shoulders are 2 or more heads wide.
(more for heroic types..less for dweebies)
Hips are about a head and a half wide. Hips should be narrower than the shoulders.

Hips are 3 heads down.

Knees are 5 heads down.





Lastly, check out the Loomis books, it's kind of a long read, but it's worth it.
http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/

Check out The drawing the head and hands + figure drawing for all it's worth, but if you're bored and want some cheap fun, get fun with a pencil, if I remember,it really helps to grasp the 3d forms win a drawing...

I think you deserve more credit than you're actually getting. I find that you are using a very unique style and while it shows good progress I suggest learning a bit more about the human body before you become too confident with this art style and realise that your stuck with it later on when you adventure onwards. A little knowledge on our bodies goes a hell of a long way :-)

Yep definitely some improvement, the last one is quite stylish :P

I agree with Noir though, you need to seriously push your anatomy. Try pick up a nice book, or even just start drawing what you see in magazines. Use lots of basic shapes and construction lines. Don't be afraid to leave them there, you'll learn a lot just plotting out all the different parts on paper, without even putting much detail in.

Maybe start out with the face, and break it down. Try studying how the skull and jaw works, and then study the eyes and nose and lips etc.. Just some ideas to keep you motivated.

dude whether you see it or not your drastically improving... inspiring for me as i have also got room to improve....i think if you added more details to drawings...such as muscle definition, clothing folds and that kind of stuff your drawings would look way more complete

Haha, i agree with everyone.. You're improving alot, you can tell in our Se as well! : O
Man, if you keep this up.. You're gonna get real good, one thing i have to say about your robots.. You make them out of Square blocks/Bricks, but if you do that they won't be able to move xD
Also, the transition from arm to hand on that last one could be a lil' bit clearer, right now it looks kinda weird to me : o
Also, your legs could use some work as well as your feet, i'll be more specific when i have the time..

Just a few points you should think about when drawing, keep up the good work! : D
