    Completely agree. That's my mindset whenever I practice anything. If I don't need to practice certain things, I won't do em just to waste my time, I concentrate on what's needed and what I need to get better at. I also have more fun that way.

    It would have been nice if they explained what people were doing wrong with the time they spent or how to work more productively, rather than just telling people to stop counting hours. haha

    Its actually pretty simple, I'm actually in his Art Camp atm and he does explain it there. Pretty much rather then simply drawing what is given to you, understand what you are drawing. And this is explain by Feng Zhu as well.


    Example like if you are doing an anatomy study using a book by Loomis and another artist, even referencing from life. Dont just look at the image the try to draw it, understand the figure, not the drawing. Do beyond the drawing....hope that kinda made sense.. xD

    Yep, which is why you'll sometimes hear about the right and wrong ways to use references as well.

    Hah hah, that's me too.

    Only it's every class EXCEPT math... numbers kill my inspiration.

    When I "practice" it's usually something that I can't draw. I draw it like, a million times until I can draw it, then I sort of forget about it. Heh.
