Standby Skies WIP2 by Shimmering-Sword Standby Skies WIP2 by Shimmering-Sword
*edit2, a little more sketch work done*

I'll be working on this between commission work, updating this deviation as I make progress.
I realize again i've gone with a shot lacking action, guess I can't help myself :P

I like how it feels like it is inside or under something, just from the simple flat darker color you added

May be a shot lacking action, but there's a different kind of action going on here. Your seeing military folks in a position in which they actually have time to sit down, and take stock of what they've done, where they've been, what they've seen, and confirm they aren't alone in having seen/done/experienced/witnessed these things.

will i have problem drawing in one body i tryed several ways but it dent work right for example my book the simplified anatomy of the comic book artist it taught me alot, but it made it ha real pain to look for the points where you need to do the hole body, let me show you what i mean here is ha link on the book ha pdf look at page 77to 89 [link] it shows how to do ha skeleton for diffrent shapes and saizes in comic book charecters body ok cool, but here wen it comes to the drawing the thing in diffrent posese like jumping for the beast or runing for waldo hiding in artic flying for your hero dodgeing for kick ass girl here things dont ad up, in what you learn, and what your skeleton dose, imagine you are drawing superman ok now imagine him on the skeleton level ok bit fuzzy but i know superman! big muscled guy flying in his fathers thong and useing his mothers carpet is ha cape i saw that guy enough times that you allways see him the guy saves you from the shity things in life like me persion aka school you internet trolls, or pussy more execat heheheeeeahaha XD sorry i had to do it man :D i never like being allways seriuos next to my frineds :), soo you start drawing the skeleton and then the maucles and then you see that the leg is too long ok! its skeleton no prob! fixed the legs now waste! dammit waste to damm small ok i just need to do is erase waste make it bigger and fix the leg and the chest then the head then arms side muscles and so on here is the problem the skeleton is crappy way to start your work but an ok way too look at what you want to do soo what should i do all mighty master?

Well first of all, the artist who made that book looks like a total noob :P
a skeleton is like you said, only useful for deciding what direction things will go, they don't help wit proportions at all. So if they wont be visible in the end, at the most your skeleton should just be some direction lines, no need to give them thickness or little ball joints.
What I suggest instead is that you do something similar, but instead of a central skeleton, sketch in the pose of the characters body with outlines instead. Like for a leg, use basic outlines of his leg. This way, when you plan your pose, not only are you getting the direction right, you also get to see how thick and long things will be. It's pretty much the whole figure done, just a little loose and messy.
You can also try drawing the ribcage and hips in as boxes, as boxes are an easy shape to visualize.

Try studying anatomy from pictures of real people instead of comics/anime too. You can easily turn photos of people into characters, but characters will never teach you real anatomy.
