There are some great books you can read.
www.mediafire.com/?i44dwzkf9j9n8 There are bunch of books you can check out

The first one I would recommend is Keys to drawing by Bert Dodson.
Fun With Pencil by Andrew Loomis is great as well.
Then for little more advanced stuff: Figure Drawing For All Its Worth by Andrew Loomis, and Figure Drawing - Design and Invention by Michael Hampton.
Search for Vilppu's books and videos as well.

Reading the books is worthless if you don't do the exercises in them.

Check CtrlPaint for video tutorials.
On youtube look for Proko, Sycra, LevelUp, Sinixdesign, the jetty jet show. These I have found to be the most useful youtube channels.

Thanks for the advice. I'm trying to learn the thing where you draw a lot of tiny lines on a giant canvas so they end up looking like a good smooth line. I have a problem where my lines look really messy and out of borders, which sometimes works with hair but doesn't do very well with smooth surfaces.
User avatar #61043 - alleksi (09/13/2014) [-]
Doing it that way takes a long time. It's easy. but you gotta be so precise with it.

I prefer just doing a dirty sketch first, and then doing another layer on top of that and trying to do the lines with long strokes. It's just constant ctrl+z until I get it right.
User avatar #61036 - hsm (09/13/2014) [-]
i don't think there is a tutorial that cover EVERYTHING, but you can separately search for shit you need. For example if you're having some problem with shading, these are the tutorials that helped me out.

Your biggest concerns right (based on your first post) now are anatomy and form (three dimensionality), not color.
You gotta learn basically everything to do what you want to do, but I would personally emphasize the aforementioned things right now. Obviously practice color and landscapes and all that jazz as well, but focus on those two things right now because once you get those down it will be easier for you to be satisfied with your work.
User avatar #61034 - hsm (09/13/2014) [-]
Watch a few tutorials man, it helps. Just experiment with stuff.

Will do, gotta find me a big 50 part one that covers everything from A to Z. If you can recommend something like that, i'd appreciate it.

Tutorials can be nice, but the best way I've found is to draw from life. Learn how to draw something by drawing that thing. One of the biggest mistakes I see people make is learning to draw by copying manga or anime, which is alright, but you never really go far because you can't understand where the forms come from.
Drawing from life is your best friend
User avatar #61032 - alleksi (09/13/2014) [-]
Essentially it's all about practice practice practice.

Mentors, teachers, guides, tutorials, tips will make practicing faster, but it wont be any easier.
User avatar #61031 - hsm (09/13/2014) [-]
Talking about learning how to draw is pretty vague. Do you want to learn something specific?

And yes practice and practice till your hand hurts.
#61033 - mephiblis (09/13/2014) [-]
I wanna draw fantasy stuff mostly, not photo realistic portraits or stuff like that. I can mostly get the sketch right, but when the shading/coloring and adding things like texture comes, i suck ass.
