been lurking for a while, reading all the great posts on this site.
I've decided I'd like to get serious about drawing, and my rendering of the human figure sucks so I want to work on it first.
I can't get to a figure drawing class and it's too hard for me to draw people on the street right now (because they won't stay still long enough).
But I have some books, by loomis, bridgman, hogarth...
what else can I do? am I supposed to just do self portraits a bunch of times to practice?
