yah i can notice it. but for somebody that doesn't use it i would say it's better than others i've seen that don't use it. anatomy can be fun to study though. definetly worth it to look into it. and i would agree with rovanna that they do look balanced.
The proportions are fine, they are cartoony, but look balanced.
You may not like my answer, but I suggest learning life drawing, and drawing real people from ferences. That's how all pro anime artists and cartoonists learn about the human body. It will help you to see the human body as a 3D form and will make your poses look more natural.
Naw~ your answer is fine, and I asked for it If I couldn't handle some constructive criticism it would be dumb to expose myself to it~ I suppose you're right, and I'll give it a try. I usually draw off my knowledge of the body(head, neck, shoulders, so on and so forth), and usually make the pose as I go along. Thanks again for your opinion~
Symbols are things we learn about how things should look. Such as how this can be a smile
In general people draw what they think they know about human anatomy from their head, through a set of learned symbols. Like how a child will draw a stickman. You know that people have 2 legs and 2 arms, and that girls have boobs and we have feet etc. But you are continually drawing them the way your brain thinks they look. Ie with the learned symbols.
As opposed to really studying how these things actually are you just continue to repeat what your head is telling you.
But in actual fact you learn to draw by learning to see.
Hahaha~ thanks for the explanation. I sorta just wrote basically what you explained with my talk with Rovanna on how I draw~ So seeing as I got 2 ppl telling me to draw actual human bodies I suppose I'll give it a try. Thanks for your opinion
