Critique on these gesture/figure drawings
I'm more focused on gesture than anatomy as my goal is to be more of a cartoonist than fine art. Any glaring errors or suggestions?

How to practice proportions and perspective?
So recently I’ve been focusing on learning proportions and perspective. I’ve been practicing by using reference, and I found I’ve been relying on silhouettes, negative space, and using plumb lines. the thing is I’m not sure that practicing this way will help me be better able to invent my own poses with proper proportions/perspective. What ways can I practice these skills so that I will not be reliant on copying? How can I use my reference so that I don’t end up mindlessly copying?

Can i have some help finding my weak points so i can work on them?
I tend to be very messy when drawing and i definitely have a problem with lineart, when comparing the stuff on my sketchbook with other people it just feels like the way i draw and practice is so wrong and there is something wrong with me, i'm hoping maybe someone has good advice.

Female anatomy book
Hi, Stan. I hope all is well with you. In your drawing fundamentals course you recommended an anatomy’s male book. Do you have a recommendation for female anatomy? Thanks in advance for all the help. Kind regards, Ana Vasconcelos

Advice for a 2D animator!
Hello everyone! First porst here in Proko community area, I'm Nelson and looking for some advice :) I'm starting once again to study the fundamentals of drawing because my drawing skills are not that good as I want them to be, and they limit both my animation and illustration skills so I was wondering which of the fundamentals would be best to focus first as a 2D traditional animator. which one do you think I should start with ?

I'm practicing Value Studies
Hi, I've been practicing value studies for a little over two months. I feel like I'm starting to get a good grip on it. Here's a value study I did, from a photo I took of an old house on Södermalm in Stockholm. I painted it in Krita and it took around 30 minutes. Any feedback appreciated :)

Critique on these 2 tone studies
All done in a 2 hour session. Attempting to better understand how to separate the lights and darks, I find I'm struggling to decide what to do when the surface is dark (like the wolfman or medusa) the shadows and surface seem to blend together and not show any detail or form. Do I ignore the surface tone and only pay attention to the shadows or should the tone of the surface be shown in studies like this?

How do you know if the top or bottom planes of the robo bean should be facing the viewer? I attached an image of the reference, and drew in red, what I thought the plane facing the viewer was. Thanks!

Restarting from scratch: Only gesture
Quite a bit of time ago, I've started trying learning to draw. I found proko's figure drawing foundamentals's playlist and it was really a gift from heaven. However at some point I hit a wall during mannequinization: My gesture wasn't really good and in the end I was more likely to ignore it during forms construction rather than actually making good use of it (you should still be able to find my other post here somewhere). Then life has got busy and I haven't had a chance to touch my drawing tablet for quite a while but today I finally managed to and planning to start over learning to draw (both by using proko's videos and ctrl+paint). This time, however, I do not want rely on poor basics and therefor have decided to seek for help in regards of my gesture drawings. I've posted a few gesture drawings I made after rewatching the "Gesture drawing video" (one is made before and after seeing the pose on the step by step video, one is only before watching the same pose on the video). When I used to try and get gesture down, almost would always rely on contours so this once I tried to focus on the motion as much as I could so sorry if they seem a little bad.
