Just added a few new things on to this list. If anyone wants to contribute a helpful link, you can either post it here or PM it to me and I'll add it up there.

The foreshortening one blew my mind. It's so obvious that now I feel dumb, oh god. :P

Curses Red, you deleted my post where I compiled a bunch of tumblr tutorials I had come across :/.  Anyways I hope this is the right place to stick this in.  Aside from the Loomis books, a lot of public domain art books are pretty disappointing.  But I came across this Gesture Drawing for Animation pdf:
http://www.floobynooby.com/pdfs/gesturedrawingforanimation.pdf

Even if you're not an animator, this is chock full of good advice and tips.
(By the way, though there is a little blurb that mentions it, this pdf is purposefully free and legal on the internet and based on the author's teaching notes.  It had his approval for distribution.)

Haha sorry, like 75% of the old links were broken and I tried to grab most of the good stuff. I'll add this up there.

I added some new links to this list and the other tutorial directory.

A cool one I wanted to point out was http://posereference.tumblr.com/


ALSO, if you find anything out in the wild that is particularly helpful, post it here and I'll add it to the top post.
