Drawing for Beginners

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Ive decided to get back into the visual art world. Im not looking to draw any da vinci type fugures or anything too detailed at the moment. my biggest influence right now is the messy, splotchy, and downright grotesque work or Ralph Steadman. (he's the guy who's did the illustrations for [I]Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas[/I], look him up)

I have to start from the bottom so does anybody have any tips? good pens I should buy? websites? beginner techniques? other artists? maybe share how/when you got started and show some work if you have any.
