In this video I will show you the proper way to practice drawing the spine by tracing over a picture of a model.

Here are my tracings. I drew these before watching the assignment examples Stan drew since I plan to go back and redraw them along with the video to see how off my judgements were. I think I drew the ribcages a bit too large & placed them too high.

Trying to find the shapes inside the form can be quite challenging. I struggle to see how they relate to each other.

Hi @John Masterton, I think you're doing a good job! Yes it is a challange! But it becomes easier the more anatomy you learn; learning to draw the ribcage helped me a lot in finding the thoracic portion of the spine for example

in the last pose it is difficult to imagine the position of the skeleton below the skin. some help

Hey, Claire. Nice effort. There's something that I think you should definitely work more. Seeing these assignments and your older ones, I feel that you're struggling with perspective and making the forms solid. Part of it is because your lines shows a lot of hesitation, part because you're misinterpreting the image and pointing the volumes in the wrong way and part is because you're not yet familiar with the volumes of the rib cage and the pelvis. The solutions involves a lot of work, but it's something that every artist do. For o more confident hand do a few exercises before you start drawing. Drawing ovals is a good way as it is drawing long lines. if you're new to digital or you never practiced these drawing exercises, it take a little time to get used to the physics of the tablet and really draw in a more natural way. So don't get discouraged. For improve your knowledge of perspective...well draw a lot of boxes. You want to have an intuitive knowledge on how boxes move on space and how their lines converge. It's the basis of representing a 3-d world in a 2-d surface. You can even repeat this exercise but insted of using rib cage, pelvis and head you use three boxes. Finally, review the lesson on Landmarks as they often provide valuable clues of the underlying anatomy: https://www.proko.com/course-lesson/landmarks-of-the-human-body/assignments And Watch (or review) the lesson on the pelvis and the rib cage. It will help you know these form better and position them in space. The 3-d models are a valuable resource, be sure to check them out! https://www.proko.com/course-lesson/anatomy-of-the-pelvis/assignments https://www.proko.com/course-lesson/anatomy-of-the-rib-cage/assignments One final tip. You're posting your assignments in the comments section or in the demos. On the main lesson that's an "assignment" tab. If you post there you're going to that instead of the traditional post button there'll be "Request for critique". That'll will tag your post as "asked for help" and it will automatically let others know that you want feedback. Since that's fewer people doing the anatomy course there's even fewer critiquing so you want to maximize your chances of getting noticed. Keep drawing and best regards.

Here are 7-10. I am digging this, although I had to draw a couple of the images 2 and 3 times before I got a decent image that looked like the home work.

#proko. Here are my attempts. Included are my attempts done before seeing Stans tutorials, and my copies of Stans drawings. I must say...my attempts were rather...er...spineless compared to his.

any critique would be much appreciated! also some great examples from other students below re: shading and color to make the assignment clearer -- excited to incorporate in future lessons!

Thanks in advance for critique. Will go back in a couple days before I'm done with the section to re-attempt with critique feedback and reviewing Stan's examples.

The main issue that I see in your assignments is that you're just drawing the structure without looking for the landmarks and it's making you make a lot of proportional errors. These women are very lean and you can see clearly the bony landmarks poking through. Review the landmarks lesson from the figure drawing course and try again this exercise looking very carefully for the clues of the skeleton you can see. Best Regards

I think the spines are really well done! Maybe a little thicker in the lumbar section (mostly in the first one) but otherwise well done! The other thing I would say is to remember the perspective in the rib cage. Especially in the last picture, it looks like one side drops lower than the other (like the rib cage is asymmetrical). Maybe try to draw the rib cage inside a box so that everything goes back to the proper vanishing point. You’ll learn about this in the rib cage lesson so I wouldn’t be too worried. Great job!

OK. I will try not to make excuses for the fact that I have no digital tools (and don't know how to use them anyway.) I tried doing a "tracing" right onto print-outs of the assignments. You will see the mess I made. It now occurs to me to try white and red colored pencils next time. My effort really discouraged me and so, I turned to the thing I like best, which is to copy the teacher, which is what I did the 2nd time around with new printouts under tracing paper.

Don’t think for a second that your efforts aren’t appreciated here. You did great with it. For being on tracing paper, they’re actually quite clean, which has always been something that I’ve struggled with. Good job with the proportions of the the spine as well as showing the different curvature of the rib cage!

This was a challenging but valuable exercise. (mostly because my eye hand coordination when I'm drawing on a monitor is still wore than with a traditional medium). The correct placement of the rip cage was IMHO the hardest part.

Hi Liandro, I find difficult to give the correct orientation and size for the truncated cone you display instead of the pelvis. It would be valuable if you include in your course a 3D view of this cone respect the pelvis and the coxis. I've looking for it in your videos, and I couldn't find a good enough reference of it, and I think this information would add value to the lessons and help a lot to the students. Thanks a lot, and congratulations for your course, I am really enjoying it. Best regards, Jordi

Hey @Jordi Solà I think those compliments are meant for @Stan Prokopenko, not me - He's the man behind all this, LOL :D And have you checked the 3D Model: The Bucket? Perhaps this is what you've been looking for. Glad you're enjoying the course!
