YO yo YO, just your neighbourhood grandma here to just you and important message:
Even if you FEEL like you don't learn anything from studying anatomy, DO IT! I'm going into nursing, and realized that poses, something I struggled immensely with, now comes to me so much easier even without doing gesture drawings because of me taking an anatomy course. Like look back at my work two years ago, everyone looked stiff as hell like they just got resurrected from a wax factory. I mean they STILL look pretty waxy, but not as much as before-- I did studies last year, then stopped because I felt like I wasn't improving. Thing is, I was just drawing from reference calling it a day. But referencing and studying are two totally different things, which I just came to realize right at this very moment.
If you struggle with anatomy, like let's say hands+arms, take a day and really study the carpals, radius, ulna. Did you know that your elbow is actually the olecranal of your tiny ulna bone? Well, probably, I'm really slow and don't know too much so that's probably the case here anyway.
But regardless! Do that. Learn EVERY region of the bones, too, not just the main stuff like what a femur is or the fact that you have bones in your body. You'll improve before your very eyebal
Anyway it's way too early in the morning and Mango keeps trying to lay on my keyboard so grandsmas signingi out
