Are you talking about digital or traditional art? When it comes to digital I think many are just unaware of the techniques used in the given program.

Both, I made a quick how to video on the basics of shadowing.
Though I find people jump way too quickly into digital. First become very good at traditional and then eas into digital. It'll make the transition a lot smoother. Since a lot of it is training the human eyes and mind to know what you're looking for.

I think you're correct. It sounds really cliche but my art improved dramatically when my art teacher told me "Draw what you see!" I'm not sure why but after that it just clicked and I improved all around.

This is actually recognized as the single greatest obstacle to learning to draw or mastering drawing as an art form! There's a whole amazing helpful book about it by Betty Edwards that has been broadly recognized for years called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (http://books.google.com/books/about/New_Drawing_on_the_Right_Side_of_the_Bra.html?id=kaNZAAAACAAJ). Really interesting stuff! Her program teaches people who can't draw anything but stick figures to do realistic portraits by learning this simple fact
