For my money, Jim Lee is one of the best artists in the world today in any medium and has the heart and soul of an educator as well as a storyteller. He tells a great story and generally talks about his process while he is drawing. Check out his spotlight panel from the 2014 SDCC.

"Visual Literacy". Sounds like a big SAT style word but it simply means looking at the world visually and realizing that it is no different than math or English, it is simply another way of speaking; but not with numbers and symbols, but with lines, color and shading. In this video from a TEDx talk, Artist Brent Eviston talks about how learning to draw taught him how to live.

Control. You will hear that a lot when you are pursuing your artistic career and nowhere will you hear it more than the process of traditional inking (ie: with a brush and India ink). The ability to make near perfect straight lines, the ability to vary the thickness of the line and the ability to do those things quickly and cleanly are key components to being a successful inker. This video discusses those skills.

How to Draw the Human Body

It all comes down to this. Unless your comic stars only blobs of ink, boxes or stick people, you will have to learn to draw the human body. You will have to become familiar with the parts, the width of things, the minutia that makes the human body what it is. Artist Jazza gives a great tutorial on constructing the body.

You may think that this is boring and beneath your talent and you know are 100% wrong! Your need to know this. You need to know forms. You need to master forms. You need to be able to draw these backwards and forwards from any perspective and then, you may move on to other things...but not a minute before.

Even Superman has to sleep sometimes, so if you want your character to display all the aspects of humanity, you will have to draw them lying down and asleep. The pose is not as easy as you might think but this tutorial does an excellent job of explaining the process.
