Anatomy Dojo ! The way of the pencil.
I have enrolled myself in an imaginary Anatomy Drawing Dojo today. We train really hard every day to perfect our drawing skills and to become True Anatomy Artists. I am looking for classmates to join me.
Here are the Dojo rules:
1. Only serious students should apply. A real martial arts master would make you sit 3 days and 3 nights in front of the dojo to prove that you are serious enough. But I will pretend you already did
2. Choose one Anatomy or Comic book you like as you will be redrawing all the anatomy pictures from it till its finished.
3. Practice every day is recommended. You should decide the amount of time you are going to spend, get a kitchen timer and set it so that you can focus 100% percent of your attention on drawing during your training. Prepare a drink and background music up front, turn off your skype etc. You don't want the Dojo Master to catch you while checking your email! Trust me on this. Last time he did I had to clean the dishes for all the other students for a month
4. Introduce yourself, write why you want to become true anatomy artist, which book you are going to use and why you chose that one.
5. Post your progress here every day.

Hi Guys, my name is Peter and I have always wanted to be able draw cool CAPCOM characters like the ones from Street Fighter or Darkstalkers. I decided to enter the Dojo to become true Anatomy Artist and perfect my drawing skills. I will be drawing 2 hours per day (except of the days I am out of my atelier). I chose Dynamic Anatomy by Burne Hogarth as I like his stylized and very easy to read anatomy pictures. I believe this is the book original Capcom artists read. After I finish this one I will probably continue with one of the Street Fighter comics from UDON or original Game sprites.
Here are my first 2 hours:

Drawing head is really tough. Not sure if its the best idea to start with it, as I believe muscles are much easier. I asked my master if we can skip it for now and then back to it later but he just hit me with his stick on my head. Probably some kind of Koan, I will meditate about that...

If you choose to do a "comic book" does that mean you would be re-creating the panels, or just re-drawing the characters as posed in the book?

Hi Sundance, if you choose comic book you are supposed to redraw all characters. You are not required to do the clothes, objects, backgrounds or panels. However feel free to add these if you like.
