    Certainly looks like an interesting approach.

    The thing is that there is no wrong or right, no easy or difficult method really. Some methods are more efficient than others (see the greyscale to...

    Grab a pencil, lots of cheap paper, get a good book on anatomy/figure drawing (Bridgman, Hampton, Loomis) and attend life drawing. If that isn't possible to do often because of location, at least...

    Work from life, period. No crappy computer game screengrab can teach you nearly as much. It doesn't compare at all.

    You have internet access, but you can't buy any books?

    Redlining isn't going to solve anything for you. You need to educate yourself. You need to draw and paint from life.

    Well, form and structure are (or should be) everyhwere in a representational painting, so I'd have to redline everything, which I don't think would be very useful.

    Those bloom/rim light effects aren't doing you any good. The picture lacks fundamentals- form, structure, lighting. You'll have to get those fundamentals up to speed (e.g. by drawing and painting...

    Going directly to Nature for these subjects is not good advice in my opinion (I'm referring to grass/foliage etc. here, clouds might be different).

    Nope. Have a look at the work presented on his page. Really has no business teaching figurative drawing.

    Vilppu or Hampton are a much better choice, and much more competent artists.

    Paint from life. A lot. Until you understand form and light & how they interact. Then extrapolate from that to paint stuff like this from imagination.
