Question about learning anatomy
I'm starting to study anatomy with an anatomy drawing book I own, but I've got a couple of questions. The book includes a section on the skeleton and another one on muscles.
In your opinion, is it better to learn the whole skeleton of the body, and then all the muscles, or separate it into body parts (so first I would learn the skeleton of the leg, then its muscles and surface details, and then move on to the arm, etc.?) I'm curious which is generally thought to be the normal or most effective way.
Another question I have is about the names of the bones and muscles. The book I have shows the names of almost every bone, muscle, and bump. Is it normal for artists to learn all these names? And if so, why?
I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts!
You must learn patience in order to have the patience to learn.
