anatomy studies are great! but draw from life, and use anatomy to referance things you dont undestand
That works great for me atleast^^
I know that drawing from life is really important. Unfortunately I have no many occasions to do so (but I'm gonna get organized!).
In the past I made my best drawing with photos, but I noticed that a life drawing rarely turns out totally bad... and it's way more interesting.

I'm practising with mannekins and started to look for some muscles.
I know perspective quite well (from ordinary school) so I'm able to make a construction, but I'm finding difficulties into spatialize from imagination, relating lines and masses to a unique horizon and stuff like that.
Oh, I realize that I'm totally unable to draw gestures...

I finished Loomis manual about figure drawing and now I started "Successful drawing" to consolidate my fundamentals (e.g. perspective).
Studying anatomy on the other side has to be a continous effort, and about that I can use various books.
Two sketches: walking pose from imagination and a quick one from photo (just searching for forms, no tones).
