Question: Does anyone know some good sites with drawing advice?
Because determination is sometimes not enough to overcome a severe lack of skill  :-\

Well practice makes perfect. I know you can probably buy some books that tell you how to draw manga and anime characters, but that depends on what your art style is.

In my opinion, I really don't like the art styles in "how to draw anime/manga" books...
I get inspiration from the anime or manga itself and from other people's work.

Getting myself to even start practicing is probably my greatest problem. Probably gotta set myself some goal as motivation or something.
As for books, I agree with you. I had a look at some they offer in the shops here, but I didn't like the style there as well.
No idea what style I'll end up with if I ever get better, will have to play around and find out I guess.

Btw, I also get inspiration from other people's work, namely all the ones in this thread. If it wasn't for all of your great work, I would never have thought of wanting to draw myself  :D

If you need a goal, try to start with easy things first. Try copying (not tracing) easy pictures like a chibi. Or work on different sections of an anime character for practice. And you could probably try to find a Japanese "How to Draw Anime/Manga" books cause I like their art styles better than the books they have here.

I have no idea for tips on drawing, because I never took art classes and just naturally knew how to draw or something... but there's plenty of people here you can ask for advice. :)

That's not bad, actually... It shows promise~

And no-one likes drawing hands.

Anyways, post 1000, so I guess it's time for a new thread, right~?
