This course is what I've learned about anatomy from over a decade of being an artist, all boiled down to a "survival" guide for drawing human anatomy. It's a straightforward way to get you started with the basics. If you sign up, you'll dive into each part of the body in bits that are easy to handle. We're talking about the head, torso, arms, and legs, and yes, that includes both male and female forms.

I put these lessons together to highlight how key it is to know the bones and muscles underneath to nail dynamic and realistic human figures. And don't get me started on gesture drawing—it's a big deal here because it's all about getting the feel of human movement down.

Each part of this course is aimed at giving artists the tools to add those anatomical details to their work, no matter if you're into illustration, concept art, or 3D modeling. This stuff will help you get a solid grip on human anatomy for all kinds of artistic projects.
