Too many to start. The positives of this is that you could start any part and it will improve.

You're doing digital. The most critical thing is to improve your hand-eye coordination when drawing from observation. Practice with Bargue drawings https://get.google.com/albumarchive/104620822473004383244/album/AF1QipNPt9r0Hvk0zLYGfndEt_B57MXUT2YxyPZtYFdV?source=pwa and remake them one by one just like this guy on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6hfRDedDGw. You'll improve greatly within a month or two if you take it seriously and finish off all of the drawings.

Are you using a mouse? How long have you been drawing for? How often do you draw? What are your goals for your art?

@tlst9999 thanks for the resource

@ambiguity I'm using a mouse, yes. I've been drawing for a few years, sporadically. My goal is to be able to express what I imagine quickly before I forget, and be able to refine it after. As you can see, I'm lacking in a lot of areas.

If your goal is to be able to express stuff from your imagination effectively then the first thing I suggest you do is stop using a mouse. Either get a tablet or just work with paper, pencil and pen for now, using a mouse will just make everything you have to learn far more difficult. If for some reason you can't do that and have to use a mouse then there's still ways to improve it will probably just be slower and harder.

Mainly I think you need to learn anatomy first, especially if you mainly want to draw figures. You don't have to do anything like learn all the bones and muscles at this point. Just practice drawing people in general. If you can get to some life-drawing classes those would be invaluable but if not use some of the figure drawing tools on this website and just try to get a better understanding of the human body and how it works.
Also at your level just drawing more will probably help a lot especially if you keep in mind the fundamentals when doing so.

Keep up the work buddy!

If you're planning on working with the mouse, I recommend avoiding lines. The advantage of working in stick is that it's a lot easier to achieve fluid linework. Otherwise, I suggest working with less line dependent styles.

Why are you drawing with a mouse?

I think if you want to get down your thoughts or feelings quickly you should just start with a sort of draft---like something like this is fine, or maybe try thumbnails and making notes. You seem to care a lot about the initial feeling or energy---that is good because you seem to know what you want. Refining is all about technical knowledge that can be applied after the idea is established.
