In the Figure Drawing course you learned a lot of core concepts of drawing the figure, but your training isn’t complete if you want to take your drawings from looking good to looking like masterpieces. Without an understanding of anatomy, your drawings will always feel like there’s something wrong. They won’t have that level of detail that you’ll see in a pro’s work.

I’m so freakin’ excited about how awesome this course is going to be. After this course you won’t need to guess what all those bumps are. I’ll teach you all the anatomy you need to draw the forms accurately and make them look like real people!

This course contains nudity. Premium videos are uncensored. Beware of private parts.

What you will learn

The structure of the skeleton, its joints and landmarks helps you with proportions and drawing the body in motion
2Tracking Muscles
The origin and insertion (attachments) of muscles helps you place the muscles in the right spot and draw the right shapes
3Simple Forms
The planar blocky forms help you with shading, accurate perspective, and making the muscles feel 3D
Understanding the layering of muscles helps you draw what everything looks like on the surface of a real person
5Cross Sections
Cross sections help you visualize the layering of muscles
6Variation / Body Types
Understanding body types helps you identify what kind of person or character you’re drawing, increasing accuracy and creative freedom
Knowing how to idealize helps you remove the things that hurt the drawing and add the things that are missing to make it better
The function of the body as a machine helps you understand its limitation and how to draw the body in motion – flexing, stretching, relaxing muscles…
Knowing how to actually draw this stuff helps with.. well, drawing this stuff!
