Hi, I agree with the suggestion of Loomis books and you can probably just search youtube and the internet for terms like: drawing human anatomy drawing perspective image composition color theory lighting in art
here are some other links: FIGURE DRAWING RESOURCES (may contain nudes): Figure Drawing in the USA and Canada:[link] 900 schools and galleries that offer figure drawing sessions you can attend human anatomy for artists:[link] small images are free/ large images available with membership human comic art reference photos:[link] huge professional photo reference site lovecastle:[link] male, female, big cats, horses, hands, heads pixelovely:[link] people and animals PoseManiacs:[link] anatomical drawing references Quickposes:[link] nude photos for figure drawing Zvork Virtual Lighting:[link] interactive lighting on 3d human models

and more than anything else, just practice your butt off.
They're all very good. Figure Drawing for All It's Worth is probably the other must have if you're doing people and such. Successful drawing covers a lot of stuff like perspective, which is really important, but some people seem to overlook a lot, where as the other one, as the name implies, mostly covers drawing people. I'd get them all if you can afford it. They're probably some of the best drawing books I've ever bought.
I've been working my way through such things in the past few years. I picked one particular element of design then focus the work I did to keep that element in mind. You don't put everything else aside, but you focus on one thing more than the other.
That is a really good way to go about things. Knowing me I probably would have tried to mash them all together at the same time not giving each the attention they need. Thank you so much! I think this will help a lot.
