It’s critique time again! Wooh!

In this video I’m going to focus on the importance of landmarks when drawing anatomy. Bones that we can see on the surface through the skin give us valuable clues to the rest of the anatomy. We can track the muscles easier because muscles attach to the bones. Also, bones are a lot more consistent between people. Muscles, tendon, and fat vary a lot, but we can count on bones to be more predictable. Let’s get started!

View the lesson on the arm bones below if you need a refresher or want to do the assignment. I’ve also included the link on Landmarks if you need a refresher on that lesson as well.
