I was just wondering if anybody out there actually draws anime, or know a good place to find some great anime style artwork. Not trying to steal ideas, but basically, I want to draw out an anime style character, and being traditionally trained (and so 'out of shape' drawing freehand - man, computers have sapped my skill!) is actually working AGAINST me - meaning that I can not get the proportions right (you know, big eyes, shorter torsos, what not)...

if I could either find a good reference or person... I would be so thankful... thanks in advance for any replies.

Here's a link to a thread here with lots of different tutorial sites,

I myself am particularly fond of:

but there's plenty of others out there. And if you have particular questions, there's lots of excellent anime artists here on these boards.

Probably the absolute best "how to draw Anime" site I've come across (and I've seen a few...) is Patrick Shettleworth's Polykarbon site at http://www.polykarbon.com/ It's amazing! Hope this helps.
