    I didn't make fun of them, I made a few comments, and I apologize for that. I've come back, there's nothing wrong with someone changing their mind.

    Okay here's the lowdown according to jaidurn.
    SPOILER! :

    Alright.
    1. Remember, people have skulls! The skull is the basic form you need to work from. Once you know the skull, you can then place the features where the skull wants them to be! The eyes go into the eye sockets, the nasal structure is based off the bridge of the nose, ect.

    Currently, you draw the eyes too far apart. There should only be an eye width between them! Rule of thumb, the eyes should be pretty much the middle on most people. Toddlers and infants have a different facial structure, but we won't go into that right now.

    Next, the top of the ears are about the middle of the eyes. The bottom of the ears is usually the end of the nose!

    For the jawline, make sure you can fit a nice healthy jawbone in there! Your character needs to be able to chew his food properly!


    2 & 3. I'm going to merge these two because they're similar in nature. The limbs are a bit long. The hands should end up falling about the crotch region. This way people can easily undo their pants when they need to use the restroom! The legs should be as long or a tad bit longer than the torso. Humans are pretty evened out.

    4. Make sure you know your muscles! The pectorals don't show through clothing unless it's a really tight shirt and the person is really fit. Check out The Rock in most of his movies to see what I mean. Or like Hugh Jackman. Either of the two works really.

    The trapezius muscle connects to the shoulder like this(Ignore the drawing to the left. I mostly needed the right image.):


    5. Remember, the human body has form! It's not a 2D shape! Perspective and form are key. The human body can be broken down into simple forms, such as the sphere. Really, if you can draw forms, you can easily draw the human body. Just remember perspective when you practice the forms.

    I drew the pose on the right for more of a visual form thing. Don't take it as law! The only law is life drawing!

    I'd recommend reading Andrew Loomis' book, "Fun with a Pencil."

    I'm really looking forward to seeing how you improve, mate. Keep it up!

    Heyo scanty!

    nice picture you got there. You improved quite well in such short time (or was I gone for that long?!) lol Anyway its nice that you are exploring more posses and more characters... Just like jaidurn said, careful with anatomy. Also careful with the balance of the character's position... May need study on poses.

    Personally, I'd like to see face studies and quick gesture drawings to see more of your raw drawing style
    Also careful with colors... May need to lessen emphasis on background by using more sublte colors and less details...

    All is good scanty you improved so much
    Take care always, would want to see more from you

    Haha well I haven't posted here in a while.
    This is a new coloring style I'm trying out, I think I will stick with it.
    Any improvements or suggestions?

    Hi vermillionfox ...
    I went through all the post here.
    I came to a same conclusion that jjjorgie came once but you said that you are confused.
    I didn't see any variations. You are doin the same mistakes.
    1. Your line arts r still same . Lacking smooth outlines .
    2. Anatomy faults.
    one thing is good that coloring is nice.
    DO LOTS Of FANARTS .

    The issues you experience are not of style or preference, they are being carried over and over and over into every peice because they are of a more fundamental reason than one shot. My suggestions;

    Work on gestures for your full body drawings, they are getting stiff and linear.
    When drawing think in 3D, a lot of your colour/lighting doesn't describe the form it is hitting. I would say it helps to breakdown the anatomy into simple shapes like two cylinders for the upper and forearm, cubes for ribcage and pelvis, cylinder for the upper leg, tapered cuboids for the feet etc.
    Lastly, there is a universal absence of folds in the clothing.
