(Im terribly sorry if am asking a question which has already been answered)
On the subject of Concept Art, I am doing my best to try and learn anatomy (mainly for imagination) since its a must for "concept" work, and also because I dont know any excersises or ideas of what else to draw that will improve my concept. However, for my situation i dont know what I should do- whether it will enforce bad habits, poor interpretations, or whatever, I dont know.
-Im 15 and I cant exactly find anywhere which will let me draw people from life unclothed yet im told that this is imperative for observation. I could draw people with clothes in the street or whatever, but some people say you shouldnt because you wont understand whats going on underneath
-I would use books or picture references to copy- until ive built up an "image-base" type thing; but then people are saying references are bad, so dont use them. In addition, Ive seen that some people say that pictures and book type media shouldnt be used because you cant establish a good perspective on something.
-On actually how to improve my anatomy drawing: should I just draw body parts, draw skeletons, muscles. gestures- I need some serious help.
Once again i apologize if I am going wrong somewhere...I probably dont make sense but I had to get down everything that was on my mind.
