Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy
Reference from real life whenever possible.
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind.

Thanks to all who donated for my llama-cessories! A lot of nice deviants donated points, and FunSizeClair donated a bowtie ^^

My pool now doesn't really have a goal, other than possibly getting premium to try out at some point and to give back to other deviants that have helped me out! So donate if you feel like it!

United States
I am a studio art student at College of Charleston in South Carolina. I like traditional media including graphite, charcoal, and ink and paints. I also like to use unusual mediums such as coffee and foods. I also like digital media and would like to go to grad school for graphic design or animation.
I am currently enjoying life in a beautiful city, where I enjoy making art, learning, and swing and blues dancing.
