It doesn't have to be realistic. Just something along the lines of this:

Female Figure sheet by =tabikat on deviantART (random example)

It lays out body parts such as the arms, chest, legs, etc. with simple guide lines. Something like this can help you plan the rest of your drawing.

As far as my improvement goes, it took me 9 years to get to where I am now -- 9 years in 5 full sketch books, 2 2" binders full of drawings, and over 200 tablet sketches. Needless to say, my improvement comes from lots and lots of practice. Anime drawing isn't something you can master in a months time -- it takes several months (and even years) to build up and hone. Knowing the human body only shortens the time to grasp its basics.

So basically, keep practicing the basics. Once you're comfortable with drawing the human body, you can move on to shaping it and turning it into an anime style of your own.

Improvement is different for everyone. Some people show major improvement in less than 2 years, and that could be you if you keep practicing. ;o

You already showed lots of improvement between your first sketches and your recent ones. If you can keep up that pace of improvement, you'll be pro in no time.

:v..

People like me loves to rush alot, so I improve drastically within 2 months, then stay static fo 2 years.

But no seriously, you've improved ALOT. Now, more practice makes it perfect, doesn't it?
