Lack of anatomy?
Hey guys, really glad to be here as i think this place is the best place ive found to learn what i want which is to:
Draw from imagination then go on to learn comic/manga art.
Im just about halfway through the how to draw anything course and the only thing im wondering/having doubts about in this ''art school'' or curiculum is the apparent lack of anatomy. I understand you can make a character using shapes, and that you can use gesture drawing (or even modify reference with gesture drawing) to make characters. But im still wondering why anatomy doesnt seem to be referenced more or have its own course in the curriculum especially as its something that alot of artists mention as being really important.
Is theres something im missing something in the curriculum? Or perhaps anatomy plays a less significant role for visual storytelling/sequential artists than it does for more realistic art?
I did have a theory in mind that the more realistic you want to make something the more important anatomy is, therefore its not emphasised here in svs learn because most cartoons/comics/illustrations are abstractions (triangle for a nose in manga for example). Any clarity from experienced artists would be appreciated.
