As concept artists we are all faced with very similar milestones. One such milestone I wish to discuss is the teaching and learning of Anatomy.
Many have their own personal opinions on what does and does not work. This is what i wish to hear. What are your processors in studying? WHO do you study from? Books? DVD's? Life Drawing? This is what i wish to know.
As for myself, I have ventured in almost all ways to learn the difficult subject, from books to dvd's and to life drawing. I have not done life drawing for ages, not because i wish not to, but because there simply is none in my region. For books I use about 6 books from Hogarth; Hands to dynamic figures to the head, and then various well known authors such as Bridgman and Barcsay. With the DVD's I have gone through all 170+ clips from the structure of man, and also watched some of the teachings from Gnomon; which are limited for anatomy studies.
With all these and months of practicing and changing schemes to see what works best for studying, I finally feel like i need to see how others study. I have looked into sketchbooks of CURRENT students who study, but what of the Professionals? How did you study and master anatomy to some extent?
