Aaay. Starting to do poses = good. Gestures are always good. ^^
Imho. If you see something is wrong with the picture you did, don't drop it and start a new one. Find what mistakes you did, what you didn't finish. As example those portraits if done with ref, try hard to achieve likeness. If you fail, try tracing.
Maybe try to work in value only. Don't bring color in yet. I personally find it hard.
And, well, studies, studies, studies. The usual drill.

paran0id- Actually, the only ref work here is the posemanics stuff and the anatomy study, there will be some portraits here eventually and other ref needing stuffs.
Just did some playing around.
your studies seem to be on track, nice to see!
those symmetrical face/patterns turned out nice too

Go on man °o°! It's great that you make so many studies. They are so helfull.
Nice studies! One small suggestion is when doing quick gesture drawings (like the ones you did from pose maniac,) try to use fluid lines and capture the pose rather than using careful, short strokes to try to capture the outline of the each limb. Don't be afraid to add cross-contour lines around joints to help yourself understand how the body occupy space, or draw "through" something that's breaking a continuous line to make sure the line stays, well, continuous Some people also find indicating where the ribcage and pelvis is helpful. Personally I understand the pose better if I draw a straight line connecting the shoulders and another through the width of the pelvis, it helps me understand how a body balances itself.
