This is not only helpful to you as an artist, but it may also save your life.
Or something like that.

Mmmmm, faces!

That's something in particular I've been trying to improve on as of late.  I still can't draw poses or perspective to save my life, but at least I'm getting better at headshots.

Huh. Ctrlpaint is gone for some reason.
I liked that site. What the hell?

EDIT: Well, that was easy.

EDIT2: Uh, nevermind. The site works again.
Seriously, it was actually totally gone for a bit there.
That was weird.

Found another figure/gesture drawing sort of site. It does poses set for various speeds, 30 seconds to 10 minutes, and even classes from 30 minutes to 6 hours long.
Some options for nudity as well, and gender of model.
There's even another section on animal drawing. Pretty neat.

Approach with caution because of nudity. Read options carefully.

So I've just started to realize the witchcraft that is Paint Tool SAI. There's a "portable edition" if you don't like trial versions.

What's so great about it? Lines! Smooth, clean, anti-aliased lines! If you hate squiggly, jittery lines because of your stupid, uncoordinated hands, use this program. It's almost like the brush tool in Flash, but better. On top of that, its easier to use and isn't as confusing or complex as Photoshop. You can adjust how much the software corrects your lines and is much lighter on performance for your PC.

Don't have a tablet? You can use a mouse! Instead of hand-drawn you can use vector layers for your line work and morph your lines with anchor points. And you can adjust your line width all along the lines with vector mode.

I'm quite hooked on model sheets of classic characters these days.

Here's some model sheets of Looney Tunes characters. Super-useful, to me at least.

Impressive.

It lasts ten pages before you see something astoundingly racist.  :D
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
