General tip:
To get better at drawing anime, stop drawing anime.

It's derived from realism in that it's a stylized representation of what we see in real life. It breaks a few rules to accommodate this stylization which is what results in the unique visual appearance of anime. However, one must first know the rules in order to break them, and the study of realism will lay a sound foundation from which you can build upon.

Its very true. Study proper anatomy, never anime anatomy.

I want to be proficient in realistic artwork, so I'm going to draw lots of anime girls until I have a strong understanding of what not to do.

You could most likely move up the hips more then 30% of her torso upwards
Thanks for the advice! ^^

I think I remember hearing that's it's best to start with the most low level of the basics; the skeleton. While not as much fun, I think you're supposed to start with drawing skeletons, then move on to fleshed-out people, then go from there

Thats not entierly true. I know a few people who do draw the skeleton beforehand, but its clearly a lot more efficient to learn how to draw the proper body without anatomical and proportional mistakes. You don't need to know how to draw a proper skeleton, unless you plan on drawing skeletons ;)

The shape of the skeleton isn't as important as knowing what bits are straight and what bits bend. Meaning, you don't have to know what the bones themselves look like, since you never actually see them. What's more important is the meat that's slapped on to the bones - the musculature. Looking at a body with the skin removed and drawing the muscles is pretty educational.

Have you tried relaxing?

The last thing you really want is to degrade yourself and your art.

Faust is correct, complaining will not really get you anywhere, rather then just talking bad about your work, fix whats wrong, or keep on practicing.

Uh-oh sorry guys, that's just my bad habit :o I'm just depressed atm
(probably because of comparing my less-experienced self to others. I just realized hey wait, I'm not others, I have my own style :D)
I'll take that -keep on practicing. :)
Thanks.
