Human Anatomy Trouble Answered

Picture of

Every time I try to draw a person, their arms, legs, and torso look stiff and unreal. Can I get some tips that will help the picture look more loose and natural? 

I don't think I have a problem with the neck and the head.  Just everything below it. x__x

Try studying pictures of actual people. Also, check out tutorials on body proportions and perspectives, similar to this one. Finally, just practice over and over, you'll get a lot better.

Interestingly I can DL the PDf files for each lesson and display on my Kindle - useful for having next to the drawing paper.

Try out this video from Marvel and also the suceeding ones. They are awesome. While practicing I watch these videos more often.

You can pick up wooden mannequins pretty cheap, this is exactly what they're for.
