    Beginner's Books, Supplies

    Hello everyone!

    Although I would like to delve deeply into animation one day, I really want to start off learning basic draw of forms, objects, and figure. As of right now, I have no experience with drawing, so I need to start off from square one, which means that I need to learn the basics of lines, shading, etc.

    Does anyone have any input on instruction books that I can buy to teach myself the basics? Also, what kind of equipment do I need to get started? Right now I have a Canson Sketch pad with 65lb paper, several Staedtler drawing pencils (graphite EE EB 6B 4B 2B HB), an eraser brush, and "Artgum" eraser. Any and all input is greatly appreciated!
