I'm struggling with finding the body shapes vs simplification. I also think I need to practice confident lines, and patience ^^ Do you guys have any tips on how to view meatier arms other than cylinders? Or is it best to just draw the cylinder anyway, thinking away the muscles? I also find it hard to use a box for the ribcage, especially from the side. It's so round!! How to think of it as a 3D shape with edges and planes? Should I just give myself more time to experiment on each pose? All tips and critiques are welcome!
Alright, I did them all! I already shared the first one in the comments, but here are the rest too. I really don't know my anatomy, that's clear. I hope I'll get better during the course. If there's anything in particular you think I should work on, all comments are welcome!
I realized while doing this that I never actually learned anatomy - at all - in school. Or since. I tried to trace this after watching the video, without looking at the finished tracing. I feel like I have so little knowledge that tracing the rest would be pure guesswork. Would you recommend doing them anyway? I guess they could be good to have to compare my skills to later on, but I'd much rather just learn some anatomy. ^^
I was drawing hands on a fast food bag on my way home from work, thinking "I need to practice anatomy". And as luck would have it, a few hours later I just stumbled over a Proko video, which took me here. Sometimes it all just works out. And sometimes someone really worked hard to help making things work out for other people. Thank you all for your hard work.
