Back to Basics

So I have been drawing from Preston Blair lately. Mostly because I've been feeling like if I really plan on improving, I need to hit the fundamentals (and I have to hit them hard). I think I like drawing from the web images I can find from the internet more then the book--probably because of Tom & Jerry...
(But the book switched them for this more generic cat and another mouse.)

There really is a lot for me to learn there, but right now my main focus is on CONSTRUCTION. I really feel like that is what is holding me back the most. Other things I am focusing on include line of action, exaggeration, and posing.

I feel like I have really cheated myself out on my foundation. But in a way I thing it just might be a fear, panic, and disdain with my current skill level (which may be due to a poor foundation? This is getting me no where....)

I'm going to have to draw my way out of this one.
