one of the best tools for showing off "dynamics" of drawing, is to find either an online guide, or one in paperback, so you'll have a physical copy to find instructions, diagrams, and reasoning.

Getting some of the Loomis pdf floating around the internet is always a great idea. He's got great info packed into them.

I still recommend good old Loomis study before diving into the world of manga. A good foundation of drawing from life is extremely valuable when going on a stylized path, and will help remove inconsistencies in your art.

It also depends on your pose while you're drawing. Stuff like this: Is your paper straight compared to your position? Do you hold the paper on table where the upper part is further away from you than the lower end? If that's the case, I recommend a paper wide book or art folder under the paper, and you hold it on your lap leaning against the table edge. That would keep the whole picture in a straight view and you don't get stretched out proportions that much.

One tip, for drawing is to draw on a raised surface, so you are staring at the piece of paper dimensionally, rather than flat against, say, a desk. One cheap, or relatively cheap tool to use is gather some spare books, and a solid surface, usually a spare piece of manilla tag paper and a thin, but sturdy piece of wood.

I personally went out to a furniture store and bought myself a little laptop accessory, an adjustable lap tray, which works just as well as an art board. They also say to use as much natural sunlight when drawing, as well as a flourescent.

I've been spending too much time on 4chan. My first impression was to think that was Rule 34 of some sort on Vegeta
