Hi, i have been attending life drawing classes for a year. Usually we draw from 30sec gestures to 15-20min poses. However most of the time i couldn't finish drawing the figure.
I think the problem for me is that i draw out every bumps/skin overlapping that is showing through the skin of the model.
So the question is, should i just simpilfy the details,bumps that i see on the model?
I study bridgeman for anatomy which he simplified for us to learn but when i read the book "old master drawings" by hale i think they showed drawings of figures with bumps and such.
Ive read somewhere in CA that when drawing figure i should actually draw and understand what is underneath/what causes those bumps..i tried to do that, observing and understanding but then it slowed me down in drawing...
Do i just look at the pose of the model and use my anatomy knowledge that i learn from bridgeman to draw?
