I figure a list of resources could be useful for some people. Feel free to suggest anything that you think should be added to the list. Any form of art goes, including writing. Gesture and anatomy
- Proko's gesture drawing series
. Very useful videos to help beginners with creating great gestures/poses.
- Free e-books on anatomy by Andrew Loomis
. His "Figure drawing for all its worth" seems to be the go-to book for learning anatomy.
- Sycra's tutorial on foreshortening.
PoseManiacs is a great website for getting lots of human poses. You can also use a 30 second draw game where you try to draw the figure that is shown for a certain amount of time. This is good for figure drawing.
. Same as PoseManiacs, but uses real models instead of 3D computer-generated ones .
. More poses. Perspective

(book). A great resource to learn technical drawing and design. Composition

. This is more for professional works in production, but there are helpful tips hobbyists can use.
- What app for what
