here is another set of studies on anatomy. But this time, I gradually used a tiny bit of reference and then used no reference at all (right figure) to draw muscles, on top of a rough outline and volume drawing of figures from reference.
The muscles are grouped together and/or simplified so it's not super accurate, but enough to help me move on to drawing skin I think, where I will be more cautious about how the muscles realistically look.
But if anyone sees something out of place (I have yet to check the accuracy of the one on the right), please feel free to let me know!
time to add skin on personalized poses yey
