Tutorial for anon on how to draw from references.
So when I draw from reference I always go in the order of; head, shoulders, waist, line of action and then filling out the body. When drawing from reference the main focus is just getting an understanding of proportions and angles of the body. When you’re practicing bodies it’s good to set a time limit for yourself so that you don’t fuss over minor details and can focus on getting the shape right. (The sketch in the video was 5 minutes)
