You live in Italy– there’s no better place in the world to study art!  When it comes to drawing bodies, the thing that really helps is to keep proportions in mind.  Here’s a blog that has some good reference on drawing body proportions by Andrew Loomis, who’s more or less the standard in traditional anatomy drawing. While drawing I listen to a lot of classic rock, like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.  I also listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks.  It’s a good way to engage my mind as I’m sitting at the draw table for hours and hours without getting distracted.  When I first listened to the Harry Potter books I’d stay up drawing until 4am every night because I wanted to see what happened next!
