Can anyone learn to draw? My people consist of two circles one for the head
and one for the torso/lower body and stick limbs. What drawing books are best
to start out with? My drawings look like something from, well, third grade :(

I can draw decent looking 2D vechicles by using graph paper. I need something
to help me draw stuff to look 3D and something to help me draw people and
humanoid robots.
