this one is good, and most tutorials are free, don't get intimidated by the standard of some users

http://www.conceptart.org/forums/

the best advice is practice practice and practice again, drawing is a craft and from my experience has very little to do with talent, its about where you want to get.

Don't mean to be unhelpful, but that's exactly how I learned to draw. I just sarched on Google for a while and just caught on. Youtube is a really good resource for vids too.

Force drawing by mattesi is a mus have buy.

Hograth does excellent dynamic figure drawings guides.

If your a beginner drawing on the right side of the brain is superb too.

Anything with notes by Glen Keane is treasure

Lean alot of anatomy, lots and lots and lots.
