Here's a list of 40 tutorials, ranging from drawing cars to dragons. Most focus on humans though. Almost all of them are really useful.

Don't have a tablet? Wanna get that MSPA look? Do you have Photoshop? Then you're in luck. Just follow the instructions below for finer lines without even needing a tablet. Yes, no tablet. When you reach step 10, use a pencil instead. Be sure to set the pencil thickness at a 3-5 or more diameter. Alternate using the "Simulate Pressure" option on step 11 to make solid or tapered lines. Right-click and view the tutorial image below.

Too bad my old Photoshop versions doesn't let me do that. :(

But luckily for me, I still have my computer at school with CS 4. :D
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Man, sure reminds me of the line tool in Powerpoint.

Though I gotta say the CS one is a heckuvalot better.



Interesting, I might try this sometime.

Look what I found!

http://www.posemaniacs.com/?pagename=thirtysecond

You basically try to draw the pose it displays in 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, it gives you a new one. This is pretty much like life drawing. The point is to quickly sketch the gesture without worrying about how good or detailed it looks. Over time, you get better and better once you do it every day.
