well that is both good and bad news.
Glad you got a sketch book and bad that you lost the chat.
No worries though, later on I'll updated this post
with the pointers I gave. Just gotta try to remember 'em. ^^'

ah no worries...lets see


-Start small with stick figures with circle joints

-try different positions with them

-look at anatomy, either living or in a book and try to
turn them into stick figures so you can see how the body moves/looks

-build on your stick figures by filling them in with shapes, circle joints,
tube legs and arms etc

-women have shorter torso's than men but their legs are longer proportionally to
their heights

um...hmm...ill post more if i think of it.

Observe other artist's work
draw lots of still life (this will help so much you won't believe it)
Observe life around you, the natural curves and crap.
feel the pencil.
Here's the crown jewel:
DRAW MORE. You can always find time to draw, be it 5 minutes on a subway/train or waiting for a doctor's appointment, there is ALWAYS time to draw. the MORE you PRACTICE the BETTER you get FASTER.

Anime women have huge boobs.
Death is all around us, draw some dead people. They're very good models, they don't move whatsoever. Make sure to pose them before rigir mortis sets in though, otherwise you'll have missed your chance to draw a good piece. Know any dead people? If not, I'd invest in a shovel...

True. I originally meant that the shovel could dig up corpses, but yeah, fresh ones are always better for posing. Golf club - good call! Very Happy
