Learning to draw

Been attending life drawing classes at Sony, but my drawing skills are so dreadful (especially compared to the amazing abilities of the full-time artists working in london studio) that i've been trying to improve in my spare time a bit.
A book called Drawing on the right side of the brain has been useful in giving me a really basic understanding of the elements of drawing, ways to think about edges, shading, proportion, negative space.
I've also come across a number of different resources online that have been excellent. Save Loomis is a site dedicated to preserving the art teaching resources from the 40's written by Andrew Loomis. Some of them are really fantastic and you can download them in pdf form or browse online. Secondly Conceptarg.org is a real inspiration, showing how vivid and varied the imaginations of concept artists can be.
