Welcome to Mt. :) As for the basic shape of the body, I would say to work on drawing shapes like spheres, cubes, that sort of stuff. Anatomy would also be advisable.

Well one of my friends is a diehard fan of anime and i never really understood why. i kept saying, "what's so great about anime?" she then sent me a show called Shakugan no Shana then before i knew it, I fell in love with that show and anime lol. & she also made me realize that without me even knowing, I have always loved anime. for example, my favorite game series is harvest moon and that series is really anime. favorite TV show is Pokemon (now shakugan no shana lol) and pokemon is really anime. But i don't really know, it kind of snuck up on me and now its growing really fast :p lol Thanks for the warm welcome though :D

1) When drawing faces, it's best to use guidelines until you're comfortable enough to begin not using them. Guidelines help place and space parts of the face such as the eyes, nose, and so on. Did you check out the anatomy tutorials at the main site?

As for number 2...
There are three ways to get drawings online. The first way to to use a scanner to scan physical drawings. The other is to take a digital photo of it. The last is to draw directly on a graphic software program like Photoshop, GIMP, MS Paint, and so on. Either one of these will work though a scanner is better than taking a digital photo.

From there, all you have to do is save it in a site like imageshack and post the url like this:
Code:
[img]http://www.url to your image goes here[/img]
...and you've just posted your artwork!
