Practicing is the only way to improve drawing the human body. :)

See if there are any life drawing classes in your city/town - with a live (nude) model - this is the best starting point.

DragonRecon,

Definitely drop by the Open Figure Drawing Workshop (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=266229), which is going on right now. :) Pictures of models are provided, and there is no time limit nor limit on the medium which you may use. You may use 2D Traditional or Digital Medium to do Figure Drawings, or, if you are so inclined, you may even do a 3D model of the pose! Hope to see you there! Beginners and professionals alike are welcome. :)

If you would like to learn how to host images and post them on CGTalk, this tutorial may be helpful: New to CGTalk? Learn how to post IMAGES here! (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=267088)

thanx for the answer, but i dont want to do a workshop, cause i dont have money for it at the moment, i just want something free, not a workshop, but just a tutorial on the internet, or some one who wants to teach me on the internet (for free).
i dont want to go to a art school to learn to draw, it's more like a hobby of me.
and the tutorials are with much text, but my english isnt good like i allready said.
i just want to learn how to draw a human body, cause i like to draw, and i want to become better. i can learn that by a tutorial(without much text), some one who want to teach me, or may something else.
but thanx for your answer anyway ;)

DragonRecon,

No problem, there are also free Drawing Lessons (Lesson 001 (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=253289), Lesson 002 (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=255700), and Lesson 003 (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=259291)) on the Anatomy forum which have lots of pictures, and text which you can skip if you like. Good luck, and I hope you find something useful on this and other forums! :)

People are still posting work to Lesson 003, though it's pretty much winding down. You are still more than free, however, to look at and use all of the Lessons as you choose. Lots of people have posted great work to these threads, and they are definitely worth looking into!

I can understand about not being able to take the workshop, no worries! :) I am just trying to show you that there are many available options here for you to use. Everything on the Anatomy Forum is free. So definitely check out the threads, and post your work! It will help you to get better. :)

[some minutes later...]
well, here is a WIP + a little story about why i'm drawing it.

+-3 months ago i couldt draw a girl, so i was trying to draw more times a girl. (i dont say than i can draw a girl now perfect, but it is much much better then 3 months ago)

first i drawed the girl with a pencil and now im trying to give here color with photoshop (brush)
what i have drawed with a pencil isnt allready good, and i will change it when i give her color.
but you can give comment to the things i drawed with a pencil cause may i didnt saw it allready.

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions! Lesson 003 goes into this technique for using Grayscale only to paint more in-depth. Definitely check out the tutorials there as well! :)

You're completely welcome! Hope this proves useful to you. :) Good luck with your drawing practice ~ just bear in mind it takes a lot of patience, but it's pretty rewarding in the end. ;)

yes :)
it's like a dream for me to draw everything i want :P
cause many times i have a good idea, and when i draw it, it looks ugly, while it is beautifull in my head (dont know how i have to say that :P)
i can't drawing about war and peace etc. cause it is to difficult to draw land scapes, and weapons. and that really sucks.

DragonRecon,

There are lots of opportunities for you here on this forum and on the WIP 2D forum to get advice and feedback. Most folks around here are really great and good about giving advice to newcomers.

The WIP/Critique: 2D, Illustrations and Concept Art (http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=31) forum is where you can post work for open critique. Folks there can really help you improve. There are lots of tutorials on the forum you're now on, and also on the WIP 2D forum, as well as the Anatomy forum (http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=177). Since all of these tutorials and all of the advice is free, I highly recommend taking advantage of it! Granted there can be so much here it can be overwhelming, but just post some of your work and ask for advice, and eventually someone will come by and give you helpful critique. :)

You always have to start somewhere. :)
