    I want to learn to draw simple objects, humans, for animation type of things. Like movies like Tangled and Frozen.

    Where is a good place to start? Apart from going to a course of course.

    You could get an anatomy booklet and start drawing from there, if you want to draw humans knowledge of anatomy helps plenty.

    Well, where everyone starts.

    Get a piece of paper and some pencils. And literally start drawing something. There's no way to begin - you just do it. Pull up an image of Elsa or whatever. Try drawing her.

    And keep doing it. It's just drawing shapes and developing it. You have to practise, though. You'll be pretty bad to begin with, but as times go on you'll get a knack for it.

    If you're really struggling, there are infinite YouTube tutorials and sites that give guides for characters etc. Copy drawings and try and develop your own.

    Good luck!

    I've been drawing my whole life. I would just be drawing whenever I got the chance to. And now I am making my own abstract art and it could be going in the Tate Modern.
    Just practice at home or wherever- draw everything around you.
