Thank you so much for all these resources. I've been looking at Darrel Tank's method. I'm wondering has anyone been using his technique. I'd love to hear how you find it. I've found it quite difficult, but hopefully just need more practice. Thanking you in advance. Pauline
Should I have looked here first?

Hi Peter! Drawspace is just another free resource that is available for people who want to learn to draw. Some of the lessons there are quite good; others maybe not as much. Personally, I think it's best to start wherever you feel inspired to start because being motivated and inspired are probably half the battle!

I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for posting these sites, I really appreciate it all so much!!! :D
Hi everyone! I started my own drawing tutorial link collection on Springpad a long while back. Sadly, Springpad closed its doors a month or so ago. I saved most of my links (thank God), and recreated this "link library" on Pearltrees and Learnist. I'm posting the links to those two sites here, because it would take me too long to link to each site individually. Hope you can find some good stuff here ....
