Yeah, Julie's How to Draw Anime has helped me quite a bit. The best advise I can give is to draw... A LOT. Keep at it. You're first drawings are going to suck big, fat, hairy donkey balls, that's a given, but you will get better with time. The number one problem most budding artists run into is a lack of self confidence. Most people get discouraged when they don't whip out Picasso's and Rembrant's their very first day, and simply give up. I could barely draw stick figures up until only a few years ago, but then I got serious about drawing and starting practicing each and every day, and now I'm creating things that I can really be proud of.

Also, try to find an artist whose style you like (mine would be Kosuke Fujishima) and try to immitate him. Find a couple pictures and try to copy them (I don't mean litterally copy them, but use them as a reference for you're own drawings). After a while, you'll find that you won't even need a reference anymore.

Try to mix things up a bit as well. Don't draw nothing but anime. Try your hand at some realistic drawings (especially people). It's harder than drawing anime, but you'll learn a whole lot more. It can give you a much better understanding of shading, proportions, and scale, and much of what you learn can then be applied to your anime-style drawings.

The best advice I can give you is that no matter what tutorial you use, always follow a style that you're confortable with.

I've seen to many guys give up trying because they were trying to copy other people's styles to the dot. Formulate your own style of drawing and build on that.

And draw allot.

And like Keiichi says, diversify your drawings. Not just characters, bot objects and places.
