Dorian, Thanks, this lesson was great. I tended to get bogged down in those little details you spoke of in the focus section. I know artists, speaking for myself, get lost in the "how" in the "process of making art" often and not the "why" of the "process of making art," which hinders actual artistic growth. Things like "this is what an arm should look like at this angle" or getting the right head tilts can be overwhelming. And that approach is entirely frustrating. With that big picture focus concept with measure, angles, etc., I'm learning to slow down, get the whole picture and make more educated deliberate marks in what I create. I don't think I grasped how/what work big then work your way down meant (I hope that made sense) until this course. Cheers,  Again, thanks for the great course.

Dorian - I just watched the accuracy section of your drawing guide, great stuff, thank you! Quick question: When drawing from life, it's often the case that my drawing will not be "sight size" on my drawing surface. How can I accurately measure my subject and then transfer that measurement accurately to my drawing? Is it a case of simply deciding to place a hash mark where I think the top of head should be on my paper, and a hash where I think the bottom of the foot should be, and make that my vertical "master measurement" that all other measurements are compared to? It seems like that leaves all other measurements open to guestimation and inaccuracy as you translate measurements from the subject up or down in size to match your first measurement proportionately on the drawing. Is there a better way? Ratio glasses perhaps? ; )
