    Question Muscular System Reference

    i been drawing for awhile, now and there...
    but i ever understood how muscles are the way then are.

    so anyone know of any good muscular system reference, those images of the internal muscles of the body. Please tell me, ill appreciate it. Post it hear and it will help me and many others.

    I tried to look for them but only found blurry basic ones (dam the internet is full of junk and bs nowadays). I want detail, big, clear ones. =B
    or even a 3d model is good


    somthing like these

    But clearer!

    Arrow try hogarth

    you might try one of Burne Hogarth´s fantastic books on human anatomy and human figure drawing.

    i bought them recently and they really are good.

    i'd recommend peck's book over hogarth's for someone beginning to learn this stuff, simply because hogarth has much more of a comic-book exaggerated-body-proportions thing going on...

    loomis, bridgeman

    hogarth is nice but not really accurate

    try to go to a life drawing class if you can... that helps a lot to memorize where things go

    i've got dozens of anatomy books but the best book i have is "drawing the head and figure" by jack hamm. lots of tips on drawing problem areas like elbows and knees. and its easier to understand than hogarth's or bridgman's books. but i learn something new from every book i get.

    If you want good muscle reference I have found this book Anatomy for the Artist very helpful. It's very daunting in it's volume and medical like text. This is more of a reference book than a proportion teacher.

    i have recently gone to the library and lended Portrait and figure drawing. by Louis Gordon...that was a really good book for anatomy, it very varefully explains what each muscle does and where it's connected and how it's connected after you've worked through this book you can do any medical study with ease!

    Cynical smarty pants.

    I agree with blade.

    Not only should you understand how to draw anatomy in 2D, but it helps a lot if you know how a particular body part behaves in 3D. Try some sites with sculptings on them. Or try to find some michel angelo pics, hell, he practically INVENTED the excagerated (?) anatomy.

    Also most german architecture and statues from around world war II are very excagerated and also somewhat more stylistic, and so easier to draw.
