    You’ve posted four threads in one month about the best way to learn. Just go out and do it. Nothing will teach you more than that. Perfect is the enemy of good

    Just to elaborate: you could have the perfect learning method, but it will still take time for you to get good. Art is more about practice and raw time input that anything else. Trying to find the best tools instead of practicing is going to lead you to being frustrated with your progress. Just draw. The rest will follow

    The most valuable resource is a book: your sketchbook.

    "But those videos may not be enough"... Well, how far did you get with those videos?

    Within the learning to do gestures (I still suck btw), I also had to dip into proportion, form, and perspective to produce just a tiny level up from straight line stickmen, but you don't know where your greatest weaknesses lie until you have done several of those drawings.

    Try to do 20 and see if you can see a pattern of blatant mistakes, those are the things you wanna work on to improve first. Some things you get better at quicker than others, and sometimes you discover more patterns of mistakes along the way. Learning drawing is like an rpg, you have to do stuff to gain experience and with that comes the level ups. Sitting and watching gameplay videos all day won't level your own character
