I have reached the point where I want to study some more shall I say theoretical stuff, anatomy, proportions etc specifically for figure and head drawing work.
The cheapest option for me is the online Loomis books. I have downloaded Drawing the head and hands and figure drawing for all its worth. I have started some of the excercises.
Now here's the fear/problem (hope I don't instigate a stoning because of my blasphemy )
won't all my images start looking sort of stylized 1950 ad illustration. Am I being silly. It's like the mindset has already started to fill my subconscious and I have to actively fight it. His figure proportions are self admittedly idealized and all the girls wear heals.
I started with Fun with a Pencil and quickly dropped it for fear of ending up doing caricatures.
I must admit his formulaic approach is easy to remember and easy to apply if you don't have any references.
what do you think? Should I continue or find some other source of info.
