Well, Lets start with your structure. Post that up. so we can see it.
If you didn't do any structure or under drawing, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that is one of your core problems.
Many anatomy flaws come early on when you are getting you initial skeleton laid out, and/or when you start to bulk up the frame into actual mass.

Once you start to master the frame work and anatomy, you'll need to do less and less prep work because you will know from experience where the parts will belong and how they will fall against one another.

Be sure to look at and study the Muscle System just a little. Once you get to know the basic shapes it should help when you add your "Meat"

Ribcage covers more of the spine than it does in your drawing.

Also, draw the body actually rotated. In your first picture, the body should be rotated a bit, most likely obscuring the shoulder on the left. Honestly, just go look at yourself in a mirror, turn 1/4, and look at your body. Examine where your shoulders are, your pectorals, your abdomen, etc. Rather than looking at forms, observe them, and study the actual shapes and angles.

a lot of things ,but in general solidify the shapes you use, be consistent with them and follow your own guidelines with placing features on top of them

Tried a different way to do the skeleton and it wound up incredibly stiff.

ignore the hands and feet.

Thats because you still are getting used to the idea of the anatomy. Right now the muscles and bones are still just symbols to you. "if I draw six squares here, that's the abs" "if I draw a pointed oval here that's the bicep" This is a step in the right direction. Solidifying your drawing can be intimidating because the more specific you are, the more exposed you are. First figure out the seperate parts, where they are how they connect. That's what your doing right now. Then figure out how THICK they are, and how they are nestled against eachother. Those are very important steps that you have to climb before you can just comfortably draw well. If you can work through a lot of text, check out the loomis books, they are online, and they are fantastic resources to start out with.

Good luck.

I agree. This is not something you are going to understand after looking at a couple pictures, reading a few tutorials or in one night at all.

This will take time, and your already trying, to that is worth something.
You just now have to study the figures given to you and practice.
