That to me makes sense, but it is very vague at the same time, and when I am struggling to figure out why I cannot grasp the concept or use that knowledge without looking at the book as reference and copying I get stuck. I have draw the simple skeleton in many angles, and have added to it the body, male and female, and studied the proportions, however when I get to some of the other examples that are kinda vague I am lost without copying the example.
Now I have not been in a class or really have been required to do any major studying or anything of that nature since high school, and my intro to drawing class a few years back. I've been in the Marine Corps. and I seem to have lost a lot of my "how to study smart" ability lol. So forgive my ignorance, I have heard this same problem before, with no answer so any input would be great.
