Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics. 
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format. 
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditional tools.

Here's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA. It's what i've been preaching to you aspiring artists since i arrived on DA, but i think his POV says it perfectly:
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

The Bedsore Conspiracy
One of the scripts for which I seek an illustrator is called The Bedsore Conspiracy. It's the first installment in a series, The Waterloo Diaries. The story is a contemporary mystery, set in a fictional Mississippi Gulf-coast town.  The protagonist/narrator – and the character for which the series is named – is Waterloo Clyde, a private detective. He's something of an anachronism, in that, while the setting is present day, he favors the attire and the rough nobility of characters a la Raymond Chandler, Mickey Spillane, and Dashiell Hammett. Leroy Rochester is the murder victim on the which the drama turns. His daughter, Ruby, hires Waterloo and becomes the story's romantic interest. Herkimer Mohawk, falsely assumed to be a local drunk, becomes something of a sidekick to Waterloo. The book combines the tradition of hard-boiled detective writing with humor, romance, quirky characters, and droll dialogue.
Here's a sample, one of Waterloo's observations:

The composition of this piece is interesting in the way you chose boxes overlapping one another for the background. It's a nice nod to ...


I am J.M. Hunter for those of you who don't know me. I am a writer and an artist and more importantly a dreamer. I believe in art as the true sixth sense. I believe it is that third eye hiding behind a furrowed brow as a person concentrates to communicate to the world around them just how exactly they sense, touch, taste, and feel about things. You've got all these "commoners" running around taking for granted the objects and people around them and in my not-so-biased opinion it is we who are charged, gifted, some say burdened with the task of being able to communicate those remaining senses in a visual compelling "shored" up way. It's the only way we really know how to communicate isn't it? Well it is for me. It's the only true time I feel one with everything...where I feel my true voice speaking and sometimes singing, other times dropping f'bombs on peoples moms like it's Christmas and I'm an Aggro Santa doin' work on a timeclock. So I'm here asking fellow artists if there's room at the table? Can I join you? Mind if I share some work here? I did pay for it, haha.
I'll be around alot more often. Get used to seeing me. Thanks in advance.
