There’s literally hundreds of great drawing, manga, comic, painting, sculpting, and art related books on this site. The website language is in Russian but many of the books are in their native language. Hopefully this is as helpful to many others as it was to me!
Signal boost for any of my followers who need art programs!
The cs2 programs date back only a few years, and still have much of the functionality of today’s more modern ones. The differences between most of the versions are little more than slight modifications or additions of minor features, and UI changes. Go for it guys!!
Also, in case the page is down, here are the download links + serials.
Wow everyone look at this- this is an amazing tablet, and I wish I had seen it before I just dropped $170 on a small intuos 5
This is called a Tursion Huion tablet- looks pretty simple right- kind of like a bamboo
here’s the thing. This tablet has 2024 levels of pressure- that is the equivalent to the pressure an intuos 5 currently has (retail price: $229 for the smallest)
You can get this lovely tablet for under $50 dollars on amazon
Only thing this beautiful table it lacking is a few simple buttons, but still, I mean, its drawing area is even bigger on average then most Wacom’s small tablets- and from the reviews ive seen on it people are very impressed….so just spreading the word around that Wacom isn’t the only one that is making good tablets- the more the company is spread perhaps they will come out with even better products that not only match up to Wacom, but are with in our price range for once!
You an buy one below at the link!
I literately just bought one of these and got it today omfg, its great you guys ok!

Honestly studying it and practicing every day is the best way to exercise, imo. I am, by far, no expert in anatomy, but I do have some resources that may help you out! There are some really good websites out there that have good references of bodies and poses, so use those as much as you can!
Some good sites are(warning: some if not all of these contain nude models):
Posemaniacs.com - This is probably a good first step if you don’t want to look at real nude models, and has a good variety of angles and poses from you to choose from.
Figure & Gesture Drawing at Artists.pixelovely.com - Highly recommended!! Awesome website for practicing drawing figures in a certain amount of time, with loads of great poses! If you explore the rest of this site they have references for animals, hands and feet, as well as drawing faces and expressions!
QuickPoses.com (NSFW because of their “erotica” section, viewer discretion is advised)
Characterdesigns.com - Website full of more poses, this time clothed(but you still get some nudity so be warned), but in a more story telling way(for the most part). There isn’t as much here as the other websites, but it’s a good place to find some more natural poses.
Here are some books, too!
My recommendation: PDF of Andrew Loomis’ Figure Drawing for All it’s Worth If you don’t use anything else that I listed here, read/look through this book. It is incredible and it is what I think is the best book out there on how to actually draw figures. Check out Loomis’ other pdf books, too! Like his Drawing Head and Hands book!
There are so many more websites out there to help you practice and learn anatomy and posing. Just takes a lot of practice and effort! I suggest practicing at least once a day, and pay close attention to the spacing and proportions of the bodies and remember not all bodies are the same. Try drawing different body shapes!
I may add more to this list if I find anything, or you can reblog with your own sources
I’ve noticed some digital artists out there who just kind of guess when choosing the dimensions of their artwork. Trying to understand ppi, dpi, print dimensions, and resolution can send you down a rabbit hole of complexity likely to break your brain.
