My goal for these is to be able to notice the curvature of the body / improve my gesture drawing ability overall (especially in the connecting joints and torso)

I usually do not request critique but am now willing to give it a shot. :

Hey again Will, the problem with your medium of choice is that you have to hold the pen in a writing grip which makes it hard to get fluid lines. If you really want to work with ink then you can do your poses in graphite and refine with ink afterwards. Ofcourse you can use ink and draw with a writing grip, it just gets harder to get fluid lines and you can't make your strokes broader or thinner based on how you tip your pencil. You're doing good tho - keep at it! :-)
