Hi I am relatively new to this community although I have found a lot of information on this site to be really useful and have been on it for a while. I am looking for mentorship to help me get better at the fundamentals of form, perspective and proportions in life drawing. I am currently a senior high school student looking to get into the Sheridan's BAA animation program.
My former art experience ranges to one year of just doodling and basic still life and observational hand drawings in 8th grade, along with being an art O'level drop out 2 years through(not due to commitment issues but due to the shift to an american system high school). Currently the new school I entered at junior year does not have art classes yet even in my old school it was mostly self studied and we were mostly guided along to a more fine arts style of drawing so less effort was put into being able to show form or perspective and more effort was put into rendering.
I will be grateful if anybody is willing to mentor me as currently I have not a lot of resources to go by(like life drawing classes or art classes in general) so I am currently learning through my own will using books suggested on the internet.
My book list which I am working with is:
Andrew Loomis "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth"
"Drawing the Heads and Hands"
George Bridgman "Constructive Anatomy"
"Book of A Hundred Hands"
"The Human Machine"
Michael Hampton "Figure Drawing(design and invention)"
Michael Mattesi "Force Dynamic Life Drawing For Animators"
I also look a lot through life drawing class youtube videos along with looking at how other artists tackle certain situations. I also look at some brief tutorials on deviantArt.
The issue I am having is although some of my questions are answered through studying books and videos, a billion more pop up.
