One I haven't seen listed yet is: Drawing Words and Writing Pictures http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-Words-Writing-Pictures-Graphic/dp/1596431318/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265320852&sr=8-1 by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden

This one is written as a textbook. I really enjoyed it.

Does anyone have any online resources for specific things? I'm particularly interested in my improving my biggest faults - drawing hands, feet, and folds in cloth.

Wow, thanks a lot. Very helpful advice in those. I find that when I find out a good trick to something it becomes a lot easier for me. Especially raerae's tutorial about stress lines made me consider how cloth works in a way I hadn't yet thought of, with the stress lines. It's a good thing to know.

Just downloaded the first set of hands.

I'm thinking "William Shatner School Of Acting". Dreadfully tempted to use them for a throw-away comic with characters who... EMOTE... like William... Shatner. SPOCK!!! KHAN!!!!

Thanks for the link. I will practice them to see if I can learn to do better than arms with little squids on them...

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOU PEOPLE oh my god. I wish I could do
a page in less than a week lmao.

For me I get distracted very easily... =[ [i have massive add, which
i don't take meds for anymore. BECAUSE I AM STUPID 8((((]

I tend to sit down and sketch about 5-8 pages at a time... this can
take me anywhere from 3 hours to the entire day, depending... then
I will work on the first sketch, ink it, flat colour, and start on the bg...
that is generally a day's work. Next day is spent mostly on the bg. And
maybe I will start the shading on the charas after that. Third day I
finish... but there are times where it only takes me 2 days...
other days it will take a whole week.

After I run out of sketches, I do 5-8 more and start again xDD

- it's a comic, ya'll 8D

http://www.karmatoons.com/drawing/drawing.htm This is a good thing on the basics of figure drawing and suggesting motion.

And here's a good hands tutorial http://www.tomrichmond.com/blog/2008/12/18/drawing-hands/

Any online resources for photographic reference material for drawing anatomy? I've tried google, but all I get is muscle breakdowns and porn.

But that makes me uncomfortable considering I do most of my drawing in full view of others. If I'm just drawing models I can still feel moderately classy, I don't find drawing porn face very acceptable at all despite what recent Marvel Comics artists seem to think (I'm looking at you, Greg Land).
