This seems to be a touchy subject but I plan on doing a lot of copying and am getting conflicting advice from people so I am just looking for some advice.
I have been collecting some Disney and Pixar art of books and plan on doing loads of copying from them and have this on preorder http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1...ls_o00_s00_i00 I have already done a few shitty copies on my sketchbook and I do feel like they are helping. I also want to copy a lot from Skillful Huntsman and books like that. I am going to be spending many hours on this and I need to make sure I'm not just training myself on just getting good at copying.
Doing life drawing classes 5 days a week would be ideal but I am limited to one day a week at the moment. I am also studying Vilppu and other training material as much as I can.
Does anyone know if people like Glen Keane or Adreas Deja would have sat down and just copied the roughs of the 9 old men for hours or was it not really like that?
Obviously it wont hurt and I should just draw everything and draw things from my room and from life in general which I of course plan on doing but I have a full time job and need to know my time is being well spent if I am going to be spending hours on copying.
