New member here! (been stalking this forum for the past 2 months) My name is Zane, and after watching some of Term 1 and 2 sessions I've decided its time to upload some of anatomy sketches that I've been doing. Firstly I want to address the fact the work I've done here isn't necessarily accurate to the assignments but I've kept many of the same principles that were covered about anatomy by Marc in mind. I would consider myself to be in the intermediate level when in comes to anatomy, as I have been studying for while before I decided to buy the Art School Program.
These sketches was done to show the anatomy in simple shapes, as it was done in Term 1 lessons. I have never attempted to do that before with as beforehand I primarily stuck to the Gesture, Line of Action and Bean method of drawing anatomy. One drawback I noticed is that anatomy does stiffen a bit when I drew shapes and not the overall gesture. I also referred to ModernDayJames on Youtube about simplifying the figure.
Once more I reverted back my way of sketching by starting with a line of action and gesture and then creating form. I think I prefer this way of sketching. I hope to upload more about anatomy and show sketches on a more detail manner. I plan on doing more regarding specific parts of the skeletal structure and muscles as I've recently watched Rey Busto's class on anatomy on NewMastersAcademy.com, from where I got the reference pictures for these sketches. Alongside that I've been reading Atlas of Human Anatomy by Peck, Figure Drawing by Michael Hampton and Force Dynamic Life Drawing by Mike D Mattesi.
I hope anyone who sees this post has some additional input regarding resources, especially places where I can get more references. One final question, should I start and Art Blog or keep updating anatomy sketches here?
