Thought I would pass this your way today. As we each head in our own art direction(s)...one thing is a common element in our successful end product of creating a beautiful/or moving art piece-drawing. Each of you may have your own unique and creative way to set up each painting. Always the simplest of all...just draw it! Easier said than done, as you might know! :)
This fellow-Proko offers good and entertaining lessons on drawing (mostly figurative and portrait based) for a very nominal price. Of course, practice is the key...just watching, I have found, doesn't produce many positive results! He is funny, and direct...not your typical "dry" kind of art guy! WARNING! If you are uncomfortable with nude models...this might not be a good teaching avenue for you. Others...enjoy his humor, extensive drawing knowledge-and many, many topics. I love the lessons on "gesture".
Enjoy your day...it is a gift.
