My final anatomy course assignment. I tried to do some on my own and then stop and watch Stan for a while to see if I was on track. It took a few days working a couple of hours each day. It was a first for me with stretching and toning the paper. I wish there were more videos like this because it was very informative. Comments welcome.
To me, this course has always been about drawing the body from imagination, in the end. So I tried drawing 'muscleman' on paper quickly, without looking at any reference. It's not quite visible, but there are construction lines showing the skeleton underneath. I added the muscles on top of that. I'm sure there are mistakes everywhere (I'm especially not convinced of the shoulders and crotch section) but I'm happy to be able to do this after rushing through this course so quickly and only once. I'm sure to review all the lessons one more in a second pass to fix what I didn't get at first, and hopefully, it will allow me to grow one step further. Anyway, I have to say : this course was wild. It's a huge, awesome work that deserves to be applauded, and I certainly don't regret the money and time I spent on this. Big thanks to everyone involved.
2022/6/19. Here we are! The last assignment of the anatomy course (I apologize for the strong light of my room). I joined Proko on November 29, 2020. About a year and a half ago my drawing level was the one in the photo on the right. I did the portrait, figure course and finally this one about anatomy. I learned a lot and got so passionate about drawing that I decided to enroll in art schools here in my city as well. I still have a long way to go to become a good illustrator but I think I'm on the right track. I want to thank @Stan Prokopenko for everything he taught me. It would be an honor for me if I could have a critique of him on this final work. I am sure there are many errors and inaccuracies. But Stan in one of his videos said once that we have to draw as if that drawing were to be exhibited in an art gallery. I put everything I could into it. And I will continue to do the same in the future as well. From tomorrow I will start studying Patrick Jones's anatomy course and Dorian Iten's course on shading. I also thank all those in the community who have allowed me to progress and improve with their very kind contribution and encouragement. Thank you all! Conte B on smooth paper (16.5x11.7 inches)
Hi all, I'm currently working on a piece that is mostly from imagination. Every time I look at it I feel the proportion is off but I don't know how to tell. My friends and family say its fine - however, they don't draw and are generally quite complimentary lol If anyone could chime in their thoughts on the anatomy and proportion ( or anything else that strikes you as needing improvement) of this figure it would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
