Need some thoughts, drawing using virtual models
Hi everyone. I'm taking an introduction art course with the prospect of working towards an illustration degree. With that said, I was wondering if anyone would be able to lend some thoughts on using programs such as this one as an alternative to practice drawing the human figure.
I don't mind drawing from life, but unfortunately I sometimes feel too uncomfortable drawing random people (I feel like I'm intruding on their own privacy) and would prefer being able to practice in comfort. The usage of a program such as that though seems to be a relatively cheap alternative as opposed to buying a full-sized manikin to practice with. However, I do not mind actually paying money to draw a model in person, I just don't like drawing random people going about their lives.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
