    Sure, I'm not an amazing artist but; I guess I have a bit of book knowledge. The biggest issue I can see is that the perspective is off. Like say the bottom left torso, is it meant to be a woman? A fat man? I can kind of tell its a torso but its just sort of strange, like sunken in.

    The others seem acceptable so far, the one above the bottom left, has the same issue, the left side seems a bit odd, like the top torso part (pecs) look a bit twisted or something. Like the torso is going in two different directions. I feel this is more of drawing proportion and angling more than it is pure anatomy.

    I'd suggest reading up some classical anatomy studies, or looking at real bodies or real people in poses to see how the body shapes and deforms to specific movements.

    But you definitely seem to be improving and I don't think its awful work at all.

    Like say

    To be a decent person to others? Nah. Don't need a New Years "resolution" to do that.

    You're welcome, I'm just trying to be a decent person to another. I know some concepts about art due to visual hobbies I've dabbled in, but actual drawing I have only recently got into. Nothing I've produced is really presentable. I suppose I could help you to the best of my ability with anything you ask, doesn't need to be art, could be anything.

    You've already noted taking anti-depressants and anti-psychotics. I don't know what your issues are (with all respect), and I won't pry or stab into them, but I'll say that it could be that the criticism makes you realize how lowly you feel about yourself, or that you're doing things wrong?

    All I can say, is that I understand that. If you don't like the criticism, all I can say is to nod and to not make a scene about it. There really isn't much else I can say honestly. Regardless, I'll be around if you need to talk or whatever

    Well that is an ambitious idea, I don't know how far it will go, but remember that no matter if it becomes a job or not, if its a passion, its a passion. I won't stop doing the things I love, just cause they're not my job. I wish the best for you with it. Make sure to research anatomy, look up books about it, try drawing from reality. (Important, so that you can know how to bend the rules). But I think you'll go along fine with it.

    If things overwhelm you, just take a break and come back to it. You're young (I don't know your age, but I'd assume teens to 20s) and have an entire life ahead of you. I can't say what will happen in that life, but things like art are hobbies, and they should be done to enrich your life and hopefully enrich other people's.

    In other words man, if you feel taxed out, then just take a break. You got a long road of life to do passions/hobbies.

    I don't really know you, but I've seen some posts related to you and I've seen some of yours in response to theirs.

    Seems you're having a tough time with things like socialization/friendship and other things like depression. If you want a buddy, I'll be here.
