hey foe~ I got a book call constructive anatomy to help myself out with drawing humans (cause I'm awful with people, great with nonsense) it talks about the numerous ways the body interacts with its connecting parts, as well as being filled with drawings to show how they work together, shape, transform, wedge, so on and so forth. I'm fairly bad at reading books but I can tell its helped me a decent bit (at least the parts I've gotten through.)

another help has been, whenever you're dicking around on the internet, if you come across any interesting photos of people (can be from the news, memes, stray pics that catch your eye or are dynamic) save that image in a reference folder. Eventually you'll decide ya gotta practice and bam! you already have a slew to pick from to attempt! It can be hard, and it takes time, but practice makes you better. The more you draw, the more successful you'll be. It's merely about forcing yourself to keep practicing.

last little pro-tips, Line weight! Using black (or dark color) sparingly and build it up in spots you want to lead the viewers eye. Lines should be thicker on undersides or in shadow, white can also do the same, so try to keep such in mind. Line weight was one of the best tips I have ever received and it makes everything look better instead of flat with no where for your eye to settle.

I hope this helps a bit, best of luck with your future arts, and though it can be daunting to look nude people, remember that the human body is art~ (but sometimes some slight censor bars can sneak in there to keep ya more comfortable ;D)
