Stand Up and Fight

Stand Up and Fight: What happened to your hopes, What happened your dreams? You're sitting here in silence, You listen to the screams. I think you've had enough, Just stand up and fight. Don't let yourself be this way, It's not alright. You used to have a smile, But then they made it go. They crushed you in the dirt, Now you're feelin' really low. I think you've had enough, Just stand up and fight, Don't let yourself be this way, It's not alright. The big bullies gang up, They got their own hang up, Forget it and man up, Ya just gotta stand up. Because this is your life, Don't throw it away. Just stand up and fight, No

First of all, put the cartoons, manga, and other stylized designs on the back-burner of your priorities until after you master the fundamentals of understanding line, form, shape and perspective.  If you have some down-time you want to kill with some cartoons, spend a few minutes warming up first on some real life gesture drawings.
