Yeah I agree I just rewatched that DVD a few hours ago and you can learn loads of stuff from it.
In time it will become second nature when you do your digital paintings sketches...you just ' Know ' where to put those colors.
But I'm a guy who preaches references...I'm not saying to become a slave to your references but if you don't know how to ...paint a winter scene in the mountains for exemple...well by all means take the time to search some good references and learn from it.
Besides...you're building a reference library at the same time so it can't hurt.:)
In the end you just have to practice, practice, practice :)
