Axed the full black on the waist line to make it blend a bit better, and rounded out the shading a bit, plus made the Deprived class from Dark Souls.

Beefcake might fall because his legs are out of proportion  :o

Went for a more dynamic pose, but I have no idea what to do with the arms.  I tried, but this was the best I could come up with for any sort of active look.  I'm happier with the legs, though, and I think I'll play with the hair at some point.

all your drawings have a big neck and head size problem. Necks pretty much expand into small heads. And hands being the same size from fist to elbow

Heres how that buff guy head would probably look full scale:

also heres someones elbow, notice the size difference with wrist

You should draw normal, non-pixel art, non anime people to get a grasp on basic proportions.

Played with the pose based on Makoto from Third Strike.  Legs look like they might be off, but the hands are doing something rather than nothing, and have a bit more human proportions.

Getting warmer, but you're still working from stylized references! There's a lot of guides and diagrams you can look at for muscle groupings on google, I'll link a few under the spoiler!




And a bonus animated one I wish I knew the source of from tumblr about arms: https://rancidmysterymeat.tumblr.com/post/158214989296/anatomicalart-piss-hubbo-fuck-this-i

Hope those help!

All of that definitely helps for the future.  Probably reused a bit too much of the edits, but I do like how this new one is looking.  I'm having problems with the hair, seen in how it appears this character looked like a man. 


This is the best example of what her hair is supposed to look like, though I can't really think of a way to shade it other than how I did.

What you've done looks more like one of those punky undercut things, perhaps something more like this?

I also reworked the face and ear a little, watch that overbite!
