Those videos along with Dan and Lem's video should get any newbie on their way to making actual latte art. Just remember at first, the milks texture should be your main concern obviously along with a good espresso. I tried very hard at the beginning to draw on top of watery espresso with watery milk and while I was able to produce a heart here or there it wasn't until I really got my milk technique down that I was able to really focus on drawing the art. Good luck to any beginners out there.
