I want to learn to animate, but first I need to learn to draw at least marginally well. My drawing ability right now is not really any better than that of most children. Is starting from this level even feasible?
Can anyone recommend some books that would be good for learning how to draw? Specifically, are there any books that would be more appropriate for someone who wants to learn to draw as a first step in the process of learning to animate? I know there are literally thousands of books on drawing, but I don't know which ones are useful.
Also, should I focus on learning to draw cartoons and construct known characters out of the basic forms or should I focus on life drawing and realistic drawings as a foundation?
Sorry if this post is very similar to what someone else has already posted, but I wanted to ask these questions under the conditions of my own drawing ability.
Thanks for your help!
