I'm J-P, young art student and i have been wondering, and trying to find answer, that how to learn differend things like Reilly method for example the best possible way,how to do things with best possible approach.. It's not now about how long it takes or what it takes i swear i WILL do it the best way when i know what is the best approach for learning things, whatever it takes. So as i haven't yet found the result, i come to here to ask the question.
My theories of learning of this are:
1: lets say that i want to learn Reilly method, and i wanna do it long way, i know bit of anatomy, and i wanna use it, i memorize things i have learned, body size comparsions and i make sketches with reilly method, i start by doing 6 line sketch of basic gesture of model, then i will check if body part sizes are right and also compared to other parts, no matter if it takes long. idea is that as you or i in this case, work 8 to 11 hours per day, will do as many sketches as possible. The process will get faster and faster and yet, flawless. in the end, after propadly few years, or couple years (no idea) if you work hard. Will you do sketches that can be done in 5 mins and have perfect gesture and body part sizes, giving you maximal infromation for greater works.
And when something goes wrong in sketch write on the sketch what went wrong, think how to fix the problem and make sure it wont happen again.
2:You will do very fast sketches, very much and after hours of working you will view though your sketches and think of things you have learned, but whats important is that you think ALL the time about your subject, about body part sizes and gestures the subject has, working constaintly and with maximal speed, and repeating same subject over and over again is proved the great way of learning of things, such as learning math for exam (note, from BOOK). Is same thing for art? i don't know, and i don't think so.
Theese are 2 ways that i have been thinking of, yet way 1 looks best for me, but i nearly surely know, that many disagree with me, i'm after all just and art student from collague, though in this profession, where you are, who you are does not matter its what you do and think.
Please, tell me your thoughts and theories, cause in my opinion, learning from sketches and books, researching is huge part of learning.
"work planned, is work half done"
-sorry for typos if there were some
-Sorry if i were confusing x_x i often tend to be..
PS: i do have found few answers for theese questions, but they tend to be just too plain typical and just simply unfit.
