i like your green-rabbit guy & especially your tumblr background gal :D
the two recommendations i have for anatomy studies (that i believe are helping me) are:
1- figure drawing (focus on gesture studies heavily) it always helps to draw from life, plus the different poses will help you pose characters.
2- exaggerated image sources (bodybuilder pictures!) you can always tame the exaggeration down to draw a less-muscular character later.
if you get frustrated, never quit altogether! take breaks when necessary, but keep in mind that you will learn the more you study. :)

Anatomy is very frustrating, especially when my characters look a little different each time I draw them.  I'll keep practicing, and maybe make some progress . . .
It's good to hear you can temper exaggerated bodies, I was concerned that practicing with those would make my look characters a little odd.
Thank you so much for your helpful feedback! ^^
