yeah studying figure drawing from a live nude model is a must for any artist planning to go into fields such as animation or illustration. Probably even more so for medical illustration. Yell at your school for not providing more figure drawing lol
Ah...back to the basics. Maybe I should start off with something like this. Mind if I use these for references for poses some time? Anyway, I think you will fin that your hand will probably fall off by the time you are done with art school. But, you are completely wonderful at what you do Heidi. See? You can take even the most basic sketches and make them look cool. All my love. Mwah!
