I think that the life drawing class in itself is for all levels. Advise and critiques are given during the whole class as what i had experienced. Foundation-wise, it's more about practise than attending more classes than what you are gonna get in cg protege.
The students there have drawing ability of all levels. Some can barely draw more than stick-man but as they practise more, they get better at it. the stickman became a CSI style chalk man, which eventually became a human.
Mine looks like some alien.

You can try some rather simple and easy things(using conte) such as drawing thick to thin lines, circles and straight lines. there is more to drawing a circle than it seems. the more u draw, the better you are at it.
or if you feel up to it, try drawing at a cafe or the library and observe the passerby.

One website you can go to for practise during rainy days is
http://www.posemaniacs.com/
though the models ain't very accurate, it's at least something to start off with.

This one focus on animator so perhaps u might find it helpful,

The most fundamental skills involve in drawing are observing, sketching and practise, get critiques, rest and repeat.
Of course those i mentioned ain't gear towards a animator or what, but it's foundation.

Those are personal opinion.

Encouraging to hear even "stick-man" standard can be found in the course too! Of course most comforting to know stick-man grew muscles by the end of the course. :lol:

Gonna start with the thirty-sec exercises first. Think it will be a quick way to develop some figure drawing foundation? Thanks for the site!

Just want to update that i have found the Figure Drawing for Animator and Designer offered by NAFA to be excellent for beginners and advance students wanting to improve their figure drawing.

It's 8 sessions only so you will have to try to practice as much as possible before the next class. Found myself wishing for more practice time by the 3rd class.. Anyway still managed to get some good basic handlers from the lecturer.

Funny and entertaining lecturer too! :)
