Leaving for a bit so I won't be able to check until later
I was wondering if their you guys had any tips on drawing:
1. females - I know they are alot curvier than drawing males, but still need some pointers on drawing them
2. torso (male and female)

I also need help with perspective and was wondering if their were any books I should pick up? I'm interested in learning 3 point perspective aswell which seems pretty confusing.

Should I consider getting a scanner? Right now I draw straight into painter and was wondering if it was alot easier to draw then scan. Sometimes I cant get an image exactly how it is on paper so thats why I bring it up. What kind of scanner should I think about getting? The paper size is 3000x4000 at 300DPI if that helps any

Thanks all
