Would love to know what I did wrong
Braydon Piper
This is my first time drawing muscles over a skeleton like this, was a little confusing and I didn’t try to get the muscle fibers perfect obviously, I just want them going in the right direction.

Hi Braydon Good job on getting all those muscles into the skeleton. They are all there and most of them in the right places. I see a few mistakes in where you have attached some of the muscles. For example the trapezius originates on the base of the skull, a bit lower than where you put it. The sternocleidomastoid inserts into the mastoid process of the skull. (You can feel this process behind your ear) a bit lower and to the front of where you put it. Also check your lats and abs, especially in the side view. I wonder what your studying process is. Trying to add muscles onto a skeleton is quite hard, I usually try to copy from a 3D model first (Proko’s are great), then trace some real pictures, then I go back to my copies to see if I need to adjust or change anything, and after all that I try to draw them from imagination. This helps to understand the form of these muscles. I imagine them a bit like worms, or even horns sometimes. I also focus on a few muscles only. Maybe two or three. I also look a lot and draw over the Houdon model. You can find some images of a corrected version by Scott Eaton. One last thing, colour coding helps me a lot. hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions. Dani
