His arm almost looks too big, and next to his butt, his hand looks giant. I don't think his arm though is actually what's wrong. I think it's his torso and bottom. his Torso starts to get too small for the head and shoulders and then his legs are too short, even for the torso that got smaller. Then suddenly his foot looks way huge, which the foot might be still in the size scale of the arm and hand, but I can't tell with it being attached to the shortened legs.
That head though I really like. It's too bad that the wonky sizes of the body distract so much from it.

I normally draw much smaller and when I was told I have to fill the page I just keep drawing too big I can't seem to get a middle ground, but I'm too nervous to try over sized pieces that span 2 pages Think I should boldly go and try a 2 pager next week?

Still, you can create some dynamic drawings by concentrating on one section of it. I'm sure once you get the scaling problem down, your life drawings will look really awesome

I suspect the rest of these problems are caused by the angle of the head. The top of the skull is sloped; skulls should be relatively flat on top. The eye seems set low on the cheek (though I'd need to see the muscle man to be sure of that). Finally, something is bugging me about the area of the skull behind the ear. I think it may be too high up? Again, I'd need to see the muscle man to verify, but those are my impressions.
