:P The hand is backwards.
I don't think so. Looks like he has the hand turned thumb-out.

Aye, the hand looks correct to me.

It looked like a tricep to me XD

But upon further research it is not.  :-[

Atnas -

Like Dusty and Eyecraft said, the palms are facing the viewer with thumbs out.
I hadn't realized it but I did get a little lazy with the smaller bones in the foot and the wrist / palm in the skeletal examples.  :-[
(I think I got away with that because we're doing foot and hand skeletal & muscle sketches this week)
I got an A on each.

Yeah I knew about the hand's position, the direction the arm was facing just confused me. It's good work!

Center of gravity. She's leaning. Never draw an incomplete figure on a limited canvas. The actual anatomy doesn't suffer so much as body language and posture does, the fundamentals.

Definitely. I suggest this method: draw a series of thumbnails. Literally, as big as thumb little sketches. These are great for capturing vitality. Then blow up the best thumbnail to about a4 size and overdraw (just put another paper on top, or do it digitally,whatever you want) pulling together the thumbnail, getting good anatomy in there on that level. This is how most pro illustrators work.

I've been drawing from Sara Simblet's "Anatomy for the Artist". Here's one of them turned into a digital piece:

Try it and see. Just rough doodle. If a construction works, it will work at this size.

Yes this is a great first step. Now it depends on which one you choose to work more on.
