    Draw more from reference???

    Hmmmmm I just got my sketchbook back from my figure drawing teacher. In her notes she said I should do more drawaings from reference rather than from life...
    Isn't it better to draw from life rather than from reference? (i.e. photo)
    She is a good teacher but this is a little confusing... every established/skilled artists I talk to would usually say draw from life.
    .its a shock to me heh =/

    ...p.s. Jason if you happen to read this.... i see my title is still the same! didn't we have a deal???

    p.s.s. wow my digital skills class is boring "this is how to open photoshop, this is how you use the paintbrush in photoshop, this is a macintosh computer, that is a mouse"
    :yawns: :boring:

    As a mans power and knowledge grows so the paths he may choose lessen more and more until he can choose only and whole what he must do.

    wow brother...smack her... kidding...

    If you draw more from life you won't be as dependent on reference... I feel like I learn something new about the human body everytime I have drawing class.
