At the beginning of this sketchbook, I suggest that drawing from life is the finest way of seeing and understanding what you are attempting, or about to attempt. I hope nothing you have since read in this book has changed your mind on this-it certainly hasn’t changed my mind in writing it. However, there are quite often circumstances where drawing from life is just not possible. For example, you may be animating a sporting action or a ballet sequence and it’s just not possible for you to be there in person to sketch what is happening. Consequently, my advice to you is move on to the next best possibility and work from there.
