I have decided to study animation in college. I am so excited about this. I drew lots growing up and have worked on different kinds of art since then. However, I have never drawn the human figure. I have started to study from Loomis, but it is hard for me because it is more of a book, then instruction. I want something with exercises. Does anyone have recommendations? Or youtube courses? or techiques... :) Also, I need to submit a portfolio to the department. I am wondering if that level of figure drawing is obtainable for me in about 8 mos. I know it is different for everyone, but a guess from anyone would be very appreciated. I hope this link works to the BYU animation site, just to use as a reference for what I am trying to do. Thanks in advance!
