In truth the shounen part could actually pass as shojo

Nice drawings, although i don't really know the difference between shojo and shonen... they look quite similar tbh :P Don't give up though, it's still good :D

okay, so i've just looked up the difference, sorrry :P

The Shoujo drawing is supposed to be aimed at girls, so it should be more cutesy, flowery and have big eyes and a 'cuter' face. What i mean by that, is that the shoujo looks like he could still be a bruiser, who gets in fights and kicks ass!

Example of shoujo - http://www.absoluteanime.com/ouran_high_school_host_club/mitsukuni.jpg
Ouran High pic :D It's aimed at girls, but i loved that series :D

Zynph, It's 1 thread per member only. Hopefully a mod shall merge the topics together, but rules are rules. Now, as for anatomy, I think Nexuun made a thread in the tips and tuts section. http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,6382.0.html

There's lots of reference, and if you look around the links, you'll probably find something that's useful!

Don't worry about it man. Anyways, anatomy is a simple answer to what you(and I, heheh) need to study and practice. And it can't be solved in one sitting, either. Draw a ton if you want to be able to draw your characters in any perspective, plus foreshortening. That includes drawing exercises that are meant to improve your skills. Lots of hard work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ektQPOQ9HeM&feature=relmfu
Be able to draw boxes, and box-man characters. The stuff from that video, mega important.
Read The Vilppu Drawing Manual by Glen Vilppu.
Why I personally like the Vilppu Drawing Manual is that it gives you steps to learning. Put in the work and you will see the results. A way to know if you're learning is if you're uncomfortable. So if you're uncomfortable reading that book, then that's good!  :D

Nice sketch.

Also, you can change the name manually. When you hit reply, there is still the Subject (or Title) line. Usually people who don't start the thread don't touch that line for the sake of courtesy, but you can change it manually and, as such, it'll change the name of the entire thread.

Edit: I could be wrong, of course.  ;)
