    There's a technique called "sightsize" drawing which you might find useful, assuming you've not heard of it already. It's a method for reproducing an object in the exact size on your page to the size that you see it in front of you. It is an extremely useful way to get the proportions down, and to learn how to see things accurately. I don't know if there's any discussion about it here, but here's a link that explains the process fairly well:

    Yes: draw from observation over and over and over. In fact, that's what you have to do anyway to get from using this tedius drawing crutch to the point of being able to draw from your imagination.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
