Another portrait of a coworker by StyrbjornA
Another portrait of a coworker
Today we bid farewell to a colleague. I drew a portrait of her, as part of a "thank you" card.  Lucikly for me she was kind enough to let me exhibit the picture, so here it is :)

Thank you! I looked at your sketches, and I found them very creative. One of the hardest things thing with drawing characters, once you know basic anatomy, is to make them interesting and original, and I think you have that part covered :)

As for how to improve anatomy and poses, the best way to do that is to draw, draw and draw some more, using any references you can find. If you spend a lot of time drawing people, you will build a intuitive understanding of how to create your own poses.

You also need to differentiate between technique and knowledge. Try to draw a perfect circle, and you'll know what I mean. Likely it won't be flawless (at least mine are not), even though you know exactly how it should look. Drawing people is of course even trickier, since it's hard to know what the "perfect result" should look like (knowledge of anatomy plays an important part when you assess that).

I am far from confident when creating poses from scratch, without having anything to look at, so my goal right now is to practice at least some every day. We'll see how that works :)

Real life studies are the best to understand anatomy, while looking at other peoples sketches can give you ideas about how you can use different techinques to bring real life subject onto a paper. Lineart for example is quite an abstract concept, which is not a realistic depiction in any way. Still, we can create interesting pieces of arts using lines only, and I find it very helpful to look at how others work to learn what works and what doesn't.
