YO! Guess who's back from their break ~Llama Emoji 27 (Awesome) [V2] 
So to start off Figure Focus month here is a study! (Thanks ZirratheGoldenFox for the name!)
I focused on the torso to create the robo bean, the purpose of this is to add some construction to my figure drawings.

I got my references from this site 
www.quickposes.com/en/library

The lessons I'm following come from Proko's Figure Drawing - How To Draw People series

Dude, this could actually be useful for me to go through and study! Thanks for posting these, as I need to practice human anatomy so I can start drawing my OCs with actually appropriate/accurate proportions! Granted, they'll be a bit cartoonier than actual people so anatomy doesn't matter AS much as it would in a portrait or something like the detailed stuff you do. As thanks, here's a link to something that might help you if you don't use it already!

Found this thanks to Vsauce, I like playing around with it and imagining alt palettes of my OCs using it (because I never actually draw them pfffft)

Hell yeah it can! It for sure has helped me :D
Oh no problem dude. Awesome I wish you luck in drawing your OC's then!
Well cartooning is a type of style, any type of stylization comes from real life so I think learning to draw from life is a huge help.
Once you learn how the body is correctly structured/proportioned then you have more freedom to play around with shapes with out it looking off! Since you are going for a more cartoony style then you don't have to worry about being 100% correct and can play around ^u^ So start drawing dude!

DUDE THANK YOU!!! *o* THIS WILL FOR SURE HELP ME!! It's so cool i can use this to focus on color for one on my months :D Thank you for sharing yo!

I mean, I'm not interested in staring at the body nude for artistic reasons or in general really. Seeing others' genitals just fills me with disgust for whatever reason UNLESS it's in a locker room. I'd rather go out of my way to take screenshots of clothed people from the content I regularly digest or images they post themselves. Heck, if I had somebody to snap the photos for me, I'd just use pictures of myself in the positions I want to draw as reference. I'll learn my workflow one way or another, and we all use varying degrees of reference, so there's that too. I'll get back into drawing as soon as I have a sturdy desk to do it on.

You're welcome, it's on my bookmarks toolbar so all I had to do was copy paste it. Just a lucky find I like sharing on occasion.

Oh damn it's that bad?? Ah well that sucks but I guess skin tight suits would be just as good to see he figure.
You dont have a phone that has a timer for pictures? That's what I do when i can't find the right reference :P
OH wait something that's easier, this site line-of-action.com/practice-to… its gives you timed poses and lets you choose between nude and "decent" (clothed) models! Okay nice! But ya know for gesture practice it's only quick doodles that help you express flow so you can just draw them in a simple journal (That's what I do) it relieves the pressure of making it look good and it can still be considered drawing ^u^ even if it's only a minute long exercise.

Cool! It's now in my bookmarks to ^u^

I try to picture where the bones are in my head, and more often than not it works well for me. I should probs get a little mannequin and use it to practice, actually! That way, I can pose it to whatever the heck it is I need and go from there!
Still can't use my desk though, as it's too crowded and I often flip the thing over when I'm MOST into the work I'm doing on it. Considering it's where I keep my laptop, I really don't want to end up doing that like I did in school. I mean, I often don't do the sketchwork beforehand (unless it's a more complex pose that would look wonky if I didn't) and I tend to like drawing things based on just the angles I see (in sixth grade I used to borrow a book on birds from the library and I drew a cardinal near perfect out of it one day and a goldfinch that looked more like a potato the next) because my mathematical brain is good at angles and relative lengths for the most part, I'd just need to practice that sort of thing again.

Oh well that's good then, so I take it you know how the skeleton works at least? 
Oh yeah totally dude! I should get one to now that I think about it.
Ahhh I see I see Oh well I didn't mean sketch for a more complex art. I just meant exercises that require sketches since you need to be fast :P Oh well if that's the case you should play around with perspective! The robo bean that I used here is used for that so maybe that will be fun for you ^u^ (That's cool! But I don't see what that has to do with angles ;u; lolol poor potato fish)

Yeah, I remember from health class (of all places) and also know if it's something I can't realistically do (twist and turn wise) then my characters really shouldn't either. I did know a girl who could touch her tongue to her elbow though and I can just barely get my foot behind my head.

Last I was in a craft store, they were like $10 for a smaller one and $20 for a larger one? Don't quote me on that, since it's been years now.

Ah! I don't like quick sketch exercises because I have to take my time with my work, if I draw just one line too quick then I'm pushing down too hard on the paper and end up slicing it. Ended up having that problem taking notes in school all the time! XP

Lol well that's good that it helped you with that at least! Mmhm wise. Woah that's crazy lolol

Yeah i remember being around that price range! But there's coupon where i go so it's even cheaper :D

But that's apart of the challenge :o Well it's not suppose to look like you spent a lot of time on them anyway? Plus they help you get faster (which is good in the business world) and then you can make art that looks great in less time ^u^
Oh damn really?? I guess you need to become more loose? lolol
