Anatomy Critiques – The Rib Cage

July 21, 20154 Comments

Let’s keep looking at how to improve on the assignments as we dive into our drawings of the rib cage.

Here are some things to consider when drawing the ribs:

Are the perspective angles converging correctly?
Is the top of the Thoracic arch in the middle of the rib cage?
Is the widest part of the ribs 2/3 the way down?
Is the top plane facing forward?
Is the rib cage the correct distance from the pelvis?
Are you drawing the shapes three dimensionally or two dimensionally?
Are you observing the angle of the Center Line?

We’ll go more in depth on these common mistakes and more in the video.

Make sure to watch the lesson and do the assignments:

    Hello Stan, hoping your fine and also wondering about that pen tablet/display you’re using… what brand is it? 🙂

    Dear Stan,
    Thank you very much for your last video Anatomy Critiques – the rib cage. It let me become fully aware that even the proportions of rib cage are correct I am drawing the shape of ribcage two dimensionally. I corrected some of my sketches right now and the rib cage got volume immediately.
