2 Where to learn
I’ve learned from books, analysed the works of artists and practised from photos, but actual life drawing should be an essential part of your learning, too. Books will teach you ratios, where the muscles are and how they work, but life drawing will show you that every body is different and help you to sharpen your observational skills. Don’t have access to life-drawing classes? Then try something like Croquis Cafe ( http://ifxm.ag/croquis-c), an online figure-drawing class that’s filmed in real time.
