LoL....I sometimes use books....but mainly i just watch artists because they seem to have a little bit of shortcuts you can mimic...i do that all the time...watch observer and copy.. ^^ i also used to trace till i could pretty much draw the picture as if i was tracing it....tho i wouldnt know how to draw it if i stopped for about 3 years...as for actually drawing...some reason i can look at a drawing and get really close to what it looks like...but when i do my own creations....i cant really come up with any..or draw them well...its kinda weird for me. idk why i cant freestyle that much. I think i need to actually take drawing classes....as i have never taken one.

copying is one thing, but making your own is totally different.. thats why you need to have a basic understanding of anatomy, you have to know the parts of the body, what they can and cant do, their proportions etc..

drawing classes can really help because they explain in detail the fundamentals, techniques or whatever there is to know, but it is still up to the person to understand all that, and what i mean is not just memorizing and remembering.

and in the end after learning all of those things it just comes to practice..

instead of books, take a life drawing course or something. books are enormously overrated

Going to learn the basics is a good first step to learn to draw. I found several of the sites in the first post to be pretty well done. However, what really matters is your interpretation of what they have to say and what you choose to do with it. I would recommend not going with what the tutorials say word by word, or using their exact method. I didn't have a lot of these tutorials when I started drawing manga, so I ended up taking a completely different approach and focused a lot on external detail before figure, and developed methods of my own. In fact, I've found some of the most amazing artists use incredibly unorthodox methods to get the job done. On the other side of the spectrum, I've also seen people who learned from guides like these and ended up with a similiar result to the comic on Dresdencodak.
One of the best methods I found to learn is to find some of your favorite mangaka and try to use some of the basic methods as a base to draw their characters. By doing this, quite often you will find what is different about their style and pick up some new techniques that you can employ into your own art style. I myself don't even use a figure when I draw. I draw some circles, then a jaw line with a neck, draw the hair, and work from there. After all of the clothes and heads and everything else I drew from other mangas, what I draw comes pretty natural to me now.
