    There isn't really a best life drawing tutorial out there - life drawing, anatomy and the human figure is something you really have to work on yourself with your own observations. However, on the side I've had my nose in Burne Hogarths books, particulaly Dynamic Figure Drawing, which documents areas such as pose, action and stance in a 3D space, as well as individual limb books like Drawing The Human Head and Drawing The Hand, etc. Very good books, but again, it all comes down to first hand experience in the field (i.e. life drawing classes)

    Isn't bad (as a note they have lots of other good beginner tutorials). Trying searching on deviantart.com or just google. As 61e.CR says though, observation is the best way to go. Sign up to a life drawing class, or just sit out and sketch on the street (take photographs if you're shy).
