      "I recently started getting into digital art with very little background in traditional art so I've had to look for outside resources to help me get a better foundation. This is definitely a good one as it's not just example drawings but contains tons of written information, techniques, and tips, too. I thought I was going to be stuck drawing cartoon styles for so long but not now!"

      "I visit this channel pretty often, as I'm trying to learn to do some sketches to add a different element to my designs. There are so many videos that very simple to follow along with as you learn. The types of sketching and drawing topics they cover is quite extensive, probably the largest video learning resource I have seen out there. It's truly invaluable when it comes to learning about sketching everything from 3D objects to human faces, bodies and forms."

      "If you've ever had a desire to to learn how to draw this is a great resource to check out. There are literally hundreds of items that this website breaks down into tutorials. Even breaking faces down from the entire face to each piece ie; the eyes, nose mouth etc. The only drawback is all of the drawing is more cartoonish than some may prefer, but otherwise a solid place to begin."

If cannot speak to the site being helpful to an experienced artist but for someone like me that just wants to have a little fun drawing some characters and trying my hand at anime I recommend Dragoart."

Great for anyone who has wanted to design animation or just have a little fun while learning a new skill. There are no landscape or realistic lessons as far as I can see, but the lessons that are there are great for animated things."

      "I don't think that this really helps. All of the tutorials that I looked at don't really help with drawing fundamentals, like being able to draw faces. The site only offers how to draw one face in one way for each different character. It's more or less like tracing something."
