    Best books/videos/guides/etc. for an absolute beginner?

    Sup guys. In your opinion, what is the best baby-mode art book, video series, or whatever. I'm talking how to sketch, how to hold a pencil, etc. I am a total, absolute stickman-tier beginner and I want some guidance to start out. Mainly so I know I'm not developing any bad habits. Thanks!

    Knowledge is just one part of learning you have to to do studies, from life (highly recommended), from photos if you cant get something in front of you like mayan statue, dont forget to do those fun sketches. I suggest you to start sketchbook here so we can help you more
