Now, I'm a pretty new guy, and I'm working and seeing progress, what I realize however, is that there are a couple of different approaches to drawing, for instance:
1. Plumb Lines: http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/i...10-suedemo.JPG
2. Thinking in shapes/form http://www.explore-drawing-and-paint...l-shapes-1.jpg
The information I couldn't find is not how these approaches work, but how they differ, what purpose each one has - I can appreciate that there is no "correct" way to approach a drawing; but from your personal experience, how do either of these methods work for you? What are you able to do with one method that you can't do with the other?
Personally, I'm trying to force myself to think and break down in 3 dimensional shapes as opposed to plumb lines (I figure it'll teach me how to draw from my imagination), but since I'm a beginner my results aren't reliable enough to draw(hehe) a conclusion - this is where you guys come in
Feel free to mention any other approaches
