I've drawn many years. Mostly I've drawn at school. My drawings were always pencil drawings. Now I want to learn drawing properly.
I have posted some of my work to other forums, and I've heard that anatomy isn't very good at my pictures. I want to learn nice colouring, perspective, etc. too to get the best results. Now I have started drawing with tablet.
Here's my latest work:
It's made with tablet and photoshop.
I wanted to make that forest more away to the marine, but it came out like that.
So I thought i need some practice, especially anatomy practices. Could you give some critique, link to tutorials, and like so.
I have one anatomy book, but it's a little hard to use. It doesn't contest any drawing tips, but the bones, muscles and so. I think that some more drawing-oriented book or tutorial would be helpful.
Last, some of my older pencil drawings:

I know beginners want to draw like the pros right from the start, but it takes practice. I would put down the fantasy themes and draw from real life. If you can draw real life accurately then you can draw fantasy. Start simple - create a still life of cardboard boxes. Learn to draw correct perspective and render correct highlights, mid tones, and shadows. Next, move on to more complicated forms. Last, draw the human figure from life (ask a friend or someone). If you don't put in the time and learn the basics your wasting your time. Good luck!
Hey there, I see your a huge fan of Dawn of War. Likewise =). From this picture there is definitely some problems with anatomy, but at the same time, this type of drawing is harder because the soldier is covered in armor. I'm no pro at anatomy, but I have been working on it for a long time now, so I'm good enough to do more complex things. But you should take Eb Sculpt's advice and start a little more simple. How I learned anatomy is to start out by drawing parts first, like limbs and such. Then work on putting it all together. A wooden figure for posing may help too.

This is a very good starting point. It's where I started and it got me going on the right track. Good Luck, and browse these forums a lot!
Thanks for the tips. Could somebody give me a link to a proper human drawing tutorial?

I just found an Andrew Loomis anatomy book from the internet and did some practice.
Here's a quick anatomy/perspective test.
What do you think about it? Something wrong there?
