    For links go here

    For ideas on what to draw go here

    For some face reference go here

    For some color theory go here

    For some perspective go here

    For some anatomy reference go here

    For an excellent set of tutorials by PromANJ go here

    More anatomy stuff (muscles) go here

    Sketchbook thread go here

    Critique center go here

    Go over, study, and most importantly PRACTICE the stuff in the various tutorials, post your work on here and keep at it. If you can find some life drawing classes to take or perhaps sit in on some at various workshops/colleges then do that. Otherwise, go to your local Starbucks, Mall, Skate Park, or whereve you can and people watch. Bring a sketchbook and draw people. Period. Go outside, draw nature, trees and all that jazz. Sit at your desk and draw what is on it - whether it is a cup of water or your watch. Learn why and how the light reflects on it to make the shapes you see.

    Just draw, draw from life, study and learn. I think you have enough to get started, the key is GETTING started. Don't think too long term and just intend to draw something cool. That alone can help bring you to momentum, which in turn carries you into creativity which carries you into happiness, which carries you into wanting to do it more which carries you into greatness.
