Hi @Lord, nice studies! Great gesture! My favorite is the 5th image; it has a very nice flow. I'll do my best to help you further: - It would be great if you treated these with the same care as your mannequins. Working with anatomy is like a continuation of the mannequin; you're still concerned about the forms and 3 dimensionality, but now you have a really complex mannequin to work with. The gesture is nice in your drawings, but the sense of structure could be clarified. It might help to think of the abs like a flexible block divided into rows of 2 bricks. Show where this form attaches and how it reacts to the underlying skeletal structure. When doing my anatomy studies, I always like to find the bones, to be certain I understand the anatomy. Hope this helps :) Keep up the good work!
One thing I noticed is that the shapes are not actually in perspective I think you should start practicing drawing boxes, cylinders and eggs alone from different angles And then instead of copying it on the figure I suggest you draw the rib cage and pelvis beside the figure and then superimpose them to see how much you are right Hope that helps
Well Freedo0 I'm not taking that course but I can tell you're drawing the rib cage. That in itself is a good sign you're on the right track. Try making the lines in front thicker and as the line sweeps to the back it gets thinner. This is a Ink illustration technique. It has nothing to do with your anatomy course. I only bring it up because by doing this I hope it will help you see a 3d object on the page. Right now Its hard to tell what part of that rib cage is in front and what is in back. By making the front lines thicker you can distinguish the object better and the "3dness" of it should automatically become more visible. Making a 2d drawing look 3d is a trick of the brain, by learning to draw you're learning that visual language. When you start to see that rib cage go from lines on paper to an object taking shape you can make better use of your contour lines. Better use of contour lines gives more realism to a line effect called overlap which also gives a drawing the feel of an object in space. practice practice practice but there is no rush.
Very good I think for your gesture Drawing, at the beginning try to draw with shoulder and focus more on the movement rather than details. Sometimes your lines feels broken probably because of doubt or hesitation. The Construction part with your boxes feel off in space. Besides that it's good you try things rather being afraid
For these studies i was thinking in perspective on my own, recreating the thought process behind these, not mindlessly copying. Just copying without thought and purpose is a waste of time, or simply trying to replicate something exactly as it is/appears. You need to think. You need to understand and analyze as you work.
