to draw human you must follow certain "proportion", if you are out of proportion your drawing will be weird. try google "human proportion drawing" or post something as suggested.

When I used to draw a lot my main subject was human form/anatomy, as such my main sources where medical books, sculptures, life drawing groups and lastly my favourite source was 5 cd's by a guy named Riven Phoenix.

you can see his website here Learn To Draw The Human Figure

He teaches you how you can draw an anatomically accurate human from your memory.

Now you have to buy the cd's, although when I found his cd's they were all free on places like youtube, but I still bought them to help support him.

If you have some money for it I'd definatly recommend getting them if you are interested in drawing the human figure. They help out a lot.

It is difficult to give you pointers on drawing the human body if you don't explain your question with more detail.

There are dozens of pointers to give on illustrating certain parts of the body.

First you must tell us if you are having more trouble drawing male or female anatomy, and if you are struggling on the face detail or the body, etc.

Perhaps you can post a piece for us to see.
