    hey i like your anatomy. Im just wondering what book you got for the anatomy? I haven't seen to many that do the whole under the skin look. Loomis does it a little for somethings but I wouldn't mind finding more books with that kind of style in it.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    I'm loving the anatomy studies. I think you have a very odd way of drawing, when it comes to the angle of the support. It's apparently working for you, so it must be your comfort zone.

    Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.

    "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.

    thanks Hitnrun, I'm not exactly clear on what you mean by "the angle of support"

    could you tell me a little more?

    I'm guessing you are saying that my drawings have a tilt to them?

    If so that may be my scanning and not straightening them back up in PS, if not tell me more.

    zazer you seem to be exaggerating some of the muscles and de-eccentuating some others, particularly in these latest ones of the legs, particularly the rectus femoris(part of the quadricep group of the upper leg) and gastrocnemicus(calf region, there is not actual calf muscle, hehe) try taking another look in that Richer book i saw before.

    but i defintely like that you break things down into shapes and then define them after, good method to use, lots of big names seem to have used it, raphael michelangelo leonardo, etc.

    keep drawing! doing well =)

    page of arms

    @SweetPea Thanks : yeah I agree that my scaling on muscles is all across the board. Hopefully that will improve.

    more studies

    SweetPea: that page is all from reference: just trying to understand the layering of the muscles : so I started with the bones and went from diagram to diagram adding the muscles.(in Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer) Its helping.. i think I need to do more for sure but each time I do it remember just a little bit more. The two arms in the bottom left corner are from Fritz Schider: An Atlas of Anatomy for the Artists I'll be doing more studies from him.


    byrondunn: thank you I don't have it yet but I'm on the path. I think you are there when you have control over the information. Right now I have only a limited understanding of whats going on, still need to get things down more in my mind before I'll be happy, and even then there will always be areas I will need to improve upon.

    more studies: I'm trying to be as transparent as I can on how I'm going about this, that way others can tell what I'm up to.

    Hoping that those better than I can offer advice and those who are wondering how to study anatomy can see one example of how one person is going about it.

    LOVE these, especially the top 4-5, anatomy is a bitch, and I'm learning it takes practice every day, to nail it. You are on your way. Hands are a bitch-you have some nice box form studies-keep it up.
    Best

    steven6: Thanks appreciate the nice comments.

    baker10: welcome to CA. Thank you. I'm doing my studies from a variety of anatomy books and Mr. Bones ,a skeleton that I picked up about a year ago. I try to call out each book when I post if I did a study from it.

    Some facial feature studies from Bridgman and my latest morning memory test.

    These are absolutely amazing. Love your linework, your mechanical precision, and the angular...ity. Angularity? It's really nice. Thanks for sharing. I have Richer on loan from the library, but I am apparently not appreciating it as much as I must. You're lovely; don't ever stop!

    Excellent, the body with muscles are like a map it gets intersting when you try foreshortening.

    Oooh you have a skele-mannequin? Awesomesauce!
    (I could really do with one of those. There's only so many skeleton references I can draw out of the one anatomy book I've got Dx)

    Great stuff, you've got quite the intense studies going here! Also liking the colour studies of muscles, first time I've seen that. Keep it up!

    Might I ask what the memory tests comprise of? Have to say I'm curious..

    sorry for the late replies, i don't like to post in here without an update but I'll do one soon k?


    Joe777k7:Thanks! I got that book to stand up by wedging it between my drawing board and a stack of books. The book is Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer.

    Marian Rowling:Thank you, that's very nice of you to say

    Bicnarok: you bet, I build em from memory as best I can, I post most of that in my sketchbook, something I'm workin' on.

    AjaxDynamoDroid: Yup! Mr. Bones I call him.I waited to long to buy one. Mine cost around $300 and was more than worth it. Haven't been spending much time with him lately, But since I need to post something in here Ill do some bone studies soon.

    Thank you. I took a little break as I've been concentrating on drawing other things lately but I'll start em back up!

    My memory tests are drawing a front,side and back view of the figure without reference adding all the anatomy I know or think I know. I start with a quick skeleton most of the time and add the muscles to it. It lets me know what parts to work on and study more. Lately I've been using a dip pen with ink to draw them.

    Hey!
    I'm studying anatomy to become a comic artist and I saw this thread, very helpful indeed, and so I decided to ask you, also because as I saw on this picture, you were learning these things from an anatomy book. So I wanted to know, if you dont mind the name of this book because it looks very interesting!
    I will wait for your reply as soon as possible!
    Thanks for the thread and good job!

    Hooray for anatomy! I see you use a sanding board to sharpen your pencils. Do those work better than regular sharpeners or is that just personal preference? I've never used one so I just wondered. . .

    Good stuff. Anatomy doesn't seem to be a problem. You may want to work on your drawing instead, especially line quality. This is something that I struggled with as well.

    Try analyzing old master drawings, I've included an example here:
