Hey all,

I'm new to the drawing scene and I would really like to make some progress, my problem is that first of all I am about as low on the scale as you can go. I can draw a half ways decent looking stick figure, and that's the upper end of my skills.

I've been searching for a decent drawing course both online and off. All the actual classes don't start till spring and the online ones I'm not willing to pay for because they are nearly as expensive as the actual class, just without the ability to talk face to face with a teacher.

Most of the free sites I find end up being nothing more than a collection of "beginner level" projects. I am desperately trying to find an A-Z lesson plan.

I looked at the tutorial page here in the forum and I did see a couple that peeked my interest, but I am hoping that someone might know where I can find an actual complete course.

I'd also be interested if an experienced drawing expert wanted to "take me under their wing" so to speak. :)

Any advice and whatnot is also very much appreciated!

Thanks guys and I hope that one day I'll have a drawing that is worthy of being shown here! :)

Welcome. I think most people here would be willing to help. I'm up for the challenge, but I am no expert. You can try some of these 101 Basics here - - to help get you started and find your way. If you are looking for more, I'd be happy to help. :D

Hi and welcome... i must agree with dexter there are good guys here who are able to help with tips and advices,,first thing is to start drawing,,posting the pictures here about ur work,,so we can c and help what to do and where,,also there would be good to know what exactly is ur interest,,i mean what u wanna be able to draw,,either is it abstract,colors or b&w, is it nature or animals, is it figures or portrait...
