    Puerto Rico huh? Ok, I was hoping you'd be like in LA or something where it's easier to find good instructors. I'll try to look something up, cuz I don't think Ricky Martin is running his life drawing class anymore lol. For now, just read through the Vilppu material and the other books that people have suggested to you. There is a wealth of information available online. Further resources include

    getbodysmart.com ...for learning anatomy, particularly insertions and origins
    the brigdman anatomy book, which is available for free if you google it.

    best,

    -Ramon

    Sorry, google doesn't have a link for that.

    Yeah Ramon I don't think Ricky Martin gives does anymore. Anyways I'm reading those books and doing the exercises. Let's see if after I read all the books and start drawing my own I improve in some way.

    Slinky are you talking to me?

    The title of your thread reminds me of a Homer Simpson quote:

    "I don't want to be a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!"

    Guess I'll echo Crane's comment. Be an artist. Nothing's stopping you but you.
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    Were you drawing before you made your conscious decision? Can we see it? It sounds like you decided to be an artist out of the blue?

    I draw but I miss the fundamentals. Here some drawings I have lying around.

    The heads of this two are quite messed up. I changed my signature after I drew the koala.

    It'll make you better in that, you'll have to learn the same fundamentals that you would when drawing, you'll just be applying them to 3D.

    It won't make you better in that, you won't be drawing as much as sculpting/dividing depending on what software you're gonna be using.

    so... yes and no.

    Thanks for the answer. I'll keep drawing then. I have another question, what should I draw to help me improve my skills? Should I do anatomy studies, or just draw whatever comes to my mind? Should I make a sketchbook even if I not very good at drawing?
