I had some time in the morning, using a blue prismacolor pencil on A4 ptinter paper did 20 minutes two poses and an arm, then I had to run some errands and I feel I really lost my mojo when I got back for pose number 4, but got really excited about pose 5 and I enjoyed it quite a lot! Had to work with my phone since internet is still not working where I live, we got hit hard by hurricane Otis. Happy holidays everyone!

Put my ego in the pencil box and try my hand at drawing the face without careful measuring and look like a fool? Alright why not? lmao. I need to do more of these anyway. I chose 5 images with 5 minute timer. Took about a minute to look at the portrait and every one of these I had a different approach. I had fun using a charcoal stick at least!

Some attempts, looking at reference once, then trying to draw from memory. Happy to take critiques.

Looking great! Now on to drawing the forms that are learned in your head while using photo reference to place the Pelvis where it goes. I found it super challenging to judge the tilt according to the pose, since the anatomical tilt is not there at all when sitting or when other motions are applied like leaning, but if the reference is good enough you will have a good time!

The way I place the head of humerus is often different from the way Stan does it. Mine looks to long occasionally. I suppose it has something to do with how I place the scapula. Can you see if I´m doing something wrong?

The deltoid tuberosity on the humerus should be about half way down the humerus, so yes, stan appears to have made the humerus a but shot there, about a third too short, but correct me if I´m wrong, since I´m going off the insertion of the Deltoid, which is half way down the humerus.

I've been going through the anatomy course for over a year and a half, and the ebooks have been super useful for review. Going back and doing the assignments, reviewing lessons, reading the ebooks and drawing from them, going to check out the other anatomy resources that you mention throughout the course. There is never a shortage of what to do. Thank you for continuing to enrich the course with valuable content.

I see great effort, Arthur! How often do you practice? It's good to get in the habit of daily drawing to improve on the hardest things like line control and proportional accuracy with eye measuring. Also, try to take your pictures with clear even lighting so we can appreciate them better. Sunlight works great! Best of luck.

Made this cheat sheet for reviewing/quizzing myself on, excluded some of the more specific terms of movement + Pertinent terms for body parts, which I'll include in a follow up post.

Nice! I also like making sheets with tonnes of useful notes. Don´t forget to go over them after a few weeks and see if you wanna make improved revised notes!

Did it before looking at Stan’s demo. It’s a humbling experience — to learn how much you still have to learn. Also, I think I need to upgrade my paper. It was really fighting against the Conte pencil.

That´s a great thing about practice, it shows you what you need to improve, so you can focus on that for the next practice and so on. If we already had all the skills developed and knowledge memorized, we wouldn´t be studying! lol I do like that you were willing to go all the way through even with difficulty, great effort bud!

Hey y'all, This is a linocut reliefprint. (Basically means that I carved a big ol' stamp and squashed some paper into it) When I was a kid, I always used to dress up as a samurai for Halloween, so I thought it would be cool to do a skull with a kabuto helmet. Good luck everyone!

It´s bananas!!!!! So freaking cool!!! I am just mesmerized by the use of line quality and dark vs light here, just so awesome!

I gotta say BRAVO for including the deep muscles Flexor Digitorum Longus, Flexor Hallucis Longus, Tibialis Posterior and Popliteus! When I was studying the Lower Leg Muscles Anterolateral group, these deep muscles you included with the Calves had me googling all over the place! Their tendons are seen in the foot muscles lesson and I feel are important to know for the obsessive anatomy students haha! This is why your content is Premium <3

Awesome! I´ve been recently reviewing the Hamstring lessons and when it comes to quickly reviewing, your PDF E-books are one of the most valuable resources! I can´t wait for the Ebook on the Lower Leg! I left a comment on one of the 3D models about a muscle I believe will be important to include that is not mentioned in the video lessons, by the way. Thank you and your team for all the hard work you people do to help us master Anatomy!

I see that the Flexor Digitorum Longus muscle is added here, which continues the form below the Soleus above it. This one along with the Flexor Hallucis Longus and others are not mentioned in other lessons. Of course I can see how they don´t really affect the form much, but I feel that the Flexor Digitorum Longus is definitely something that should be included in the lower leg muscles eBook when you make it.

I find the arm muscles lessons really challenging overall, and I'm sure to go back to them a lot of times before getting the hang of it.

Hey there! Goo effort I see! I believe that what will help you most is simplification. Go back to square one for direction. Have you got the figure drawing course? Practice gesture and then add the anatomy on it ONLY if you feel it will carry the pose forward. Simplify and continue to practice no matter how hard it gets, take breaks too! Go enjoy life! Come back with a fresh mind and take another crack at it! Persistence is key! Wish you the best of luck!

Here is my work for the Extreme Angles assignment. I decided to "box" some of the heads to make perspective a little bit easier. Please let me know how I can improve!

How are you? I´m not sure if this was posted minutes or months ago. I see a struggle with convincingly making a sphere and attaching a plane for the face. What will help you is the youtube videos by Stan, where he shows the way Perspective applies to the head. It took me MONTHS to get Perspective into my subconscious BUT there are tonnes of good books on it you can download, preferrably I would recommend Marshall Vandruff and his old perspective courses as well as Ernesto Wattson and his perspective made easy books. With these fundamentals down you will have a MUCH MUCH easier time tackling something as complex as the human face. Don´t be afraid to practice at least an hour a day and give it a week or two to start really feeling it! Best of luck!!!

This reminds me of that time in the podcast where you shared that it is hard to begin exercising but the reward is phenomenal later. Due to it being painful first, it is a virtue. When drawing, measuring takes a lot of brain power, lots of patience, and concentration. It is not fun, well maybe for certain cultures it can be, but the rewards from measuring are immense. Learning to see your mistakes and investing a good deal of time to the measurement will yield tremendous pleasure when rendering because you can just let it all flow at that point, confident that things are in the right place!

Key word here is try! It is an absurd amount of work if you do every single assignment. I can't wait to see how far your passion takes you, and hey you might set a sort of record to beat sport here lol. Best of luck!

Hello Proko, I am wondering whether you can cover the Cubital Fossa? which is that little triangular dimple located between the Biceps, Ridge muscle, and Pronator Teres. How it forms and other properties, thanks.

Thanks for bringing that up! I found that if you study the biceps, and the forearm muscles, then google some images about the Cubital Fossa, you will get pretty much all you need to know to understand that form. I wasn´t even aware of it, but after doing some googling I was enlightened. Thank you again!!!

It looks like the names are mixed up in the PDF with the Sartorius and the TFL
