I have been reading CA forums for a while now and would really like to start getting into this kind of stuff but at this time I sorta really suck. Now while I do not expect to become awesome like many of the people here I was hoping I could improve with some professional coaching... and maybe have some fun drawing and painting.
So I am looking for some video lectures on drawing. NOT on application use, or just time-lapse of some legend making me sick with envy
Is there any drawing "theory" video lectures that you guys can recommend or better yet produced by massive black? Stuff that covers the basics form the start? Not something like the "villains" witch sounds awesome form the MB site but again it is like "ok so you can draw and pant.. now how to make it even better" I am thinking much more basic... like pen holding tips, how to work out proportions, composition fundamentals, do you draw arcs with the wrist or the shoulder.. stuff like that? Well I do not know what should be in it... but I think you know what I mean... Like early classes for those not wishing to improve but those wishing to start.
Basically I am a 3D animator, one who has been doing it for a while and mainly got into it as I loved cartoons but sucked at drawing.. though I was really good at computers... so I moved into the techy side of animation (things like simulations, rigging and stuff like that) So I was hoping that there would be some real ENTERY level , total beginner video drawing lectures that I could get from you guys that would help me get a grounding in the basics of figure and environment drawing.
Thanks in Advance
