I have manged to get a month (with a possible extra 2 weeks as well) off work to do some serious study but I can only make 1 life drawing class a week. Since I am going to be doing some intense anatomy study over the time I was wondering what your opinions were on getting one of these. Everyone says drawing from observation is the way to go so I was thinking drawing from these rather than just my anatomy books would be a massive aid.
I was just wanting your honest opinion on whether this is just an expensive luxury for a beginner like me because it more a tool for the advanced artist or whether it will really help me out studying because I will be drawing a lot more from observation in my study this way.
Also if you do think it would be useful which of the two would be better to go for? It might seem obvious that the skinless one is better because the muscles are clear but with the other one I would use an anatomy book to work things out form the surface forms the same way I would from life drawing and drawing from photos.
Thanks in advance
