Bare asses!

I'm finding the back more difficult to draw than the front, just because there are so few reference points on which to base proportions. The second drawing here is much better than the first (I wish I had rights to publish the originals to demonstrate, but I don't), so at least that's an improvement already. In the near future, I hope to learn enough through this to illustrate a very disturbing trend I've begun to notice in women's fashion.

Again, look at the form. Proportion and angle seem to be off. Particularlly in the top. Women are generally curvy and these read more 'young boyish'. I know you have no formal training so I don't mean to be harsh. You have skills. You're better than SEVERAL people in my portrait class.
If you ever have the time at lunch, you should just sketch somewhere you can people watch.

Some ladies do have very boyish figures, but when in doubt, narrow the shoulders and make the hip area bigger. Or fix the hip shape. But the shoulders tend to be the big culprit when it comes to that man-ish hulky factor, least that's what I find when I draw.
