    Struggling with the Pelvic bone.

    Alright, so here's my problem, I'm having trouble finding tutorials on how to draw the pelvic bone from simple shapes, at the moment I can't afford to get a real life skeleton in order to figure out how to draw it, and pictures don't help either. But I still wanna know how to build the pelvic bone out of simple shapes, so if anyone here knows how to put it all together from simple shapes, please PLEEEASE teach me. The pelvic bone has such a complex form, I just can't figure out how to do it. -.-

    I have no advice for you on constructing the pelvis from simple shapes, as I do not work that way myself. My approach to anatomy is to sculpt the forms in clay and then draw them from observation.

    You don't have to spend alot of money on a full-size skeleton. Small reference skeletons are cheap...not 100% anatomically accurate, but good enough for simple drawing reference. If you don't want to buy one of those, then a couple of small sticks of modeling clay, a piece of armature wire, a few reference photos, and 15 minutes of your time should be sufficient to sculpt your own pelvis model to draw from.
    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.

    Bammes is good for this...I should really study these myself.

    Two flat circular disks at an angle.

    Struggling with the Pelvic bone.

    Example from Loomis's Figure Drawing for All it's Worth.

    Then you can get more complex as the Bammes example Andrew posted shows.
