Hi,

I'm not a very good artist but you can search here, the body is in 3D and there are a lot of poses.

Thank you very much! I'll try using some of these poses :D
However I'm not going for 100% realistic. But I can definitely use this!
Thank you!

*note - these are simplifications already, they are done by the artist. they may work well for someone, and not at all for somebody else. important thing is NOT to use simplifications before you know EXACTLY what forms they simplify and how.

Thank you. :) however they really don't work for me.
Thank you so much though. Hopefully they can help someone else.
Do I have to? XD
I know the thigh to the knees is a cylinder ish shape and the knees to the ankle is just a weird looking hot mess of a shape.
Ill redraw this again tomorrow.

That right there is precisely why you should study from life, everything has a specific shape, it's not random. None of them are saying you you can't stylize btw, they're saying you should understand how things actually are before you bend the rules to your liking.

Understandable. :/
Off to the study chamber. :/
Edit: I'm gonna do this my way. Spending hours just drawing a slab of muscle like most people do doesn't work for me. Thank you.
I will however look at my legs. XD and google pictures of legs LOL

you don't need to spend hours drawing all the muscles. It can get boring if you aren't interested in all the small details indeed.
Just draw a few models. concentrate on the contour of the leg and the proportion. Start with simple front, side and back-view. then start seeing how you could draw it simpler, more to your liking.
( and the best part comes when you actually understand the shapes. so you can construct it in any view. otherwise you will be limited to reference )

Do you have an idea already to which kind of style you are aiming for with your drawings? If you have an artist who's work you like... it can be fun to study it a bit. see how they do it.
Look closely. Can you really See?!
