Zazerzs' Anatomy Box:studying anatomy crits and comments welcomed
Hi, thank you for visiting my thread. I've let my drawing slip a bit these past years, not doing it much if at all, and its time to get it going again. To start I'm going to do a bunch of anatomy studies. I'll use Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer and the Bridgman books. For the start I'll keep the time short on em and move on trying not to get to bogged down if my measurements go a little a stray, I'll tighten up more once i knock some of this rust off.

great little thread, and some nice pencil work. I like the way you have everything laid out. And the gloves you wear..its the sort of thing a slick serial killer would display his handiwork! LOL.
Do you draw form life also?

Thanks Gurch. I do draw from life but not in years. I will return to open life drawing sessions soon. I'm in the Seattle area and the Gage Academy of Art open studio is probably where I'll start.
I'm going to try to keep this thread purely anatomical studies.

Ekler: thank you, the pencil im using is a Conte pencil HB,I can sharpen it to as fine as a pencil point, although my lines are getting a little heavy,need to watch that. Something to improve.
Dpendleton: thank you. The book im using currently is Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer. I like the bridgman books for anatomy function, mechanics and structure, Artistic Anatomy for clear anatomy and Vanderpoel for surface shading.

Nice studies so far, it's great to see someone really working on anatomy nose to the grindstone. One thing you're missing is a feeling for the bones, your drawings focus a bit much on the muscles and don't look very solid as a result. What you should do is draw the bones first and draw the muscles from origin to insert, so if you're drawing say, the vastus internus, you'd draw the pelvis, femur, tibia and patella...and the fibula if you want, then start at the smaller trochanter and draw the bone down to the common tendon. This way is moire analytical and will help you out more in the long run. If you do end up studying at the Gage, make sure to study some constructive drawing on your own, to round out your draftsmanship. Hope this helps

Thanks Pancho: I agree I'm concentrating too much on the muscles, after you mentioned it I noticed I haven't layed out any bone points yet ..dang
I'll do the skeleton 1st exercises soon. Constructive drawing is on the list of things to do I'm pretty much going back to basics. I plan on just dropping into the Gage life-drawing classes on the weekend no instructional classes. I am interested in Juliette Aristides, she studied at the same studio I did, at different times. Unfortunately my time there was brief.
Here are two from tonight. My goal right now is to get through the examples in the back of Artistic Anatomy.
