A friend of mine once told me that the only problem he had with my artwork was that I drew the human body as it it were one object. Instead, he suggested, it was a set of many objects that all connected to form a person. I think I finally figured out what he means...

Instead of my futile practicing of drawing my characters repeatedly to try to gain consistency and skill, I will break the task down into smaller parts. I will practice drawing arms and elbows until I get it right. I will practice drawing torsos until they look decent in my eyes. I will practice drawing knees, fingers, noses, necks, wrists, feet, and heads each one by one. When I begin practicing one object, I will continue on that sole object until I have it right, then when I think I have them all correct, I'll practice putting them together. Finally, when I can finally draw the human body, I will work on unique faces to represent my characters. Followed by slight alterations to body structure and posture.

Assuming I could practice all these things by attempting them all at once repeatedly was foolish. Lets see if I can make any head way attempting this method.
