A Bunch of Tutorials Artistic Anatomy Is learning to draw anatomy in a classroom more secure (since there is a teacher to check the work and possibly a book to study from) in practicing artistic anatomy drawing, or should artists focus on just practicing from images on websites/blogs like this tumblr? Asketh - pjmx24 Depending on the size of your class and where you are, your teacher can be a great guide to help you and show you what areas you need to focus on more to improve and give you good material to work from! If your class size is too big (ideally a class of no more than 15 is optimal for a teacher to give extensive feedback to all students) you might not get enough feedback to really improve as much as possible to your full potential. Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Even a page a week of studying will help you improve. Hope that gives you some insight!

Check this out. Foreshortening is basically an optical illusion created from a compressed looking drawing in perspective. There’s several ways artists choose to render their drawings using foreshortening. Receding Plane Technique Scruffy Ronin uses a method that relies on a drawing a flat plane that recedes into space as a boundary. Five Points in Foreshortening Here’s another basic set of rules you should follow when working with foreshortening.
