Drawing From Photos

I have continued to wonder if drawing from photos is good or not, today I asked the question. “Can it hurt my drawing”?

One figure drawing session a week is not enough. I could maybe do two a week but three would not be possible. So in comes the photos. I recently found this post from www.freshdesigner.com which has some wonderful information on what a good reference photo is as well as a big list of images. This is where I picked this image from.

So the big question is. Does drawing from photos hurt an artists progression?

I will have to continue to write about this question tomorrow, as it is too late tonight.
