Drawing with conceived forms and using the classical lighting of the masters is so freeing when it comes to drawing or painting. Once you understand these few basic conceived forms and the lighting on them you can render or paint almost any form with your own direction and perception of lighting.
I used this new conception of forms and lighting in the painting below to help with the rendering of the anatomy of the figure.
To help explain this concept further I have created a video on my website that goes in more depth with some visual examples and explanations. You may view the Video for Free here. Or if you like it and want a higher resolution video, you may purchase it online.
Let me know how it changes your painting, it has really helped mine.
