You know I'm very envious of those kids who spent their childhood copying their favorite cartoons or comics. They were learning so much without even realising it! ]I always drew as a kid, but I never copied. I just drew from my imagination and as a result I drew badly :P
Usually when you speak to somebody who is young and really good at drawing, they'll tell you they spent their childhood copying art. So here I am, way overdue, but I'm also copying artists work to learn from them. I used the work here of John Byrne to analyse some poses with a skeleton and anatomy from memory.
And some good old Loomis...seriously love Loomis as you might've noticed from this blog. His books just keep giving!
