hey /ic/ I gotsa question out of curiosity
how has studying arts, in any form, change you? particularly your personality, goals, out look on life, philosophy, morality, etc etc
For example, I personally found that I respect nature a lot more, and worship all thats "beauty" in my point of view. I also feel that I try to help the brokens in society alot because thats the theme that seems to pop up the most in my art somehow. Also, I now fear dying without ever being known for my art and the messages contained in it, so I just try to art my ass off

When learning fundamentals/basic anatomy, do people just practice drawing elbows and pecs all day?
I was on Vilppu and right after the anatomy section I jumped onto Hampton since it felt impossible to do. I keep trying to draw pecs and arms but for some reason it feels like I'm not progressing or learning anything. I'm trying to analyze and not copy the references but when I try to apply all the things I learned in my references session, I can't. It just looks like I didn't improve in the past week.
Also, how do you go through these books? Read all the sections, then draw human figures while referring to specific parts of the body, or isolate the body part and draw those a couple hundred times?
Just wondering if people just practice drawing nothing but ankles and elbows when they're starting out (not later on, cause obviously later on you're going to need to refine)
Pic related. I think I copied this straight from the Vilppu book since references/not getting them was frustrating me.
