Heya fellow CA's just needed some advice on G. Bridgman's book
I just bought his complete guide to life drawings today and when i tried to read it through and looked/drew some of his drawings on anatomy i could not help but wonder myself,
'can his style really cramp my drawing style?'
Ive been heavily focusing on learning anatomy and have several other realistic books that interperts the human anatomy and i also attended to alot of still life classes to supplement my knowlgde.
But now that i bought Bridgmans book, Not only do i have a problem understanding his anatomy distribution (length of the legs, arms etc) but can it maybe taint my current knowledge on anatomy and style of drawing?
In his book, his characters are way too broad and their arms are too short. in my drawings, i tend to draw them with longer arms and slender bodies.
most of my knowledge on anatomy comes from Joseph Sheppards books And i feels that his book seem to depict the anatomy abit more 'correct' than his.
anyone expirenced the same issues?
