Alright, step three in the daily because wed is always a horribly busy day I only got through 3 steps on the list of all things that should be done daily, tomorrow should be MUCH more free for creation.
I have to say, when looking at trying to do these as boxes with these more complicated shapes was difficult, I tried to make it work and for the most part I believe that I did. but the issues that Marc discussed about the simple shape skeleton was really highlighted with these poses.
At the same time, by paying attention to the location of the collar bone/lower rib cage, and the upper pelvic bone/pelvic floor, the placement of the hips and shoulders do hold to what Marc discusses in Nude Figure Drawing 3 - Joints. It is really worth taking the time to do it this more simplified way and to really think about what is going on, this is exactly why I signed on for this, jewels of knowledge that I haven't found other places.
@marc I am curious about how to do box skeletons most effectively when the subject has their upper or lower torso to the side and tilted. I simply went with trying to picture a plane through the body and experimented a bit with its placement, but I would bet you have a solid way of doing it. Of course I only made it up to the joints video today, so you might have an answer I just haven't seen yet.
