Strong disagree. There's a reason EVERYONE will tell you to study anatomy. It's crucial. You can practice all you want doesn't mean you will improve.
You're missing my point. I'm not trying to lecture Saber, I'm trying to motivate them. Obviously, only drawing a sphere a hundred times a day just because the head resembles one does not make one a master at drawing heads.
Let me change my previous wording to make it clearer.
"If you're starting out with cartoon, then you shouldn't force yourself to master photorealism and accurate biological anatomy down to the gluteus maximus, just for the sake of enjoying the experience of learning to express your art.
Unless you're a fully determined artist with an optimistic mindset who is learning to recreate the human form, then it's definitely advisable for you to do so. If that's the case however, you wouldn't be making this thread in the first place so I don't really need to mention these last two sentences."
There's a youtube video called "Why "I have Drawn my Entire Life" Doesn't Matter
Don't know how this is relevant but I'll give it a look. Title sounds like an enjoyable online rant.
