I have been learning figure drawing for the past few months. I have been sitting down with Burne Hogarth's Dynamic Figure Drawing and essentially mimicing the drawings. Then, I will attempt to recreate the figures on my own, without any reference.
I have been improving, but what is the BEST way to learn this stuff?
Should I be studying the drawings, then mimicking them, then attempting them on my own? What should the ratio be in terms of experimenting on my own, mimicking others, studying material be?
