I having trouble working with all the information I have some of it contradicting that its almost like I am making it harder on myself when going to life drawing.
Sketchbook here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=234403&page=7 you can see I am struggling.
The main example being "Draw what you see, not what you know/think you see" vs Villpus "Never copy the model."
It seems like I should be honing my observational skills and trying to be as accurate as I can with shapes and angles and proportions before delving into methods that deal more with abstraction like Vilppu or Hampton or even the Loomis Mannequin. I mean still doing studies at from them at home to start implanting the information but not worry about implementing these methods with the model yet until I can at least draw what I see.
Is this right or should I just keep doing what I am doing, trying to implement Vilppu's methods? I cant tell whether I am jumping ahead of myself.
