Hey y'all, This is a linocut reliefprint. (Basically means that I carved a big ol' stamp and squashed some paper into it) When I was a kid, I always used to dress up as a samurai for Halloween, so I thought it would be cool to do a skull with a kabuto helmet. Good luck everyone!

I gotta say BRAVO for including the deep muscles Flexor Digitorum Longus, Flexor Hallucis Longus, Tibialis Posterior and Popliteus! When I was studying the Lower Leg Muscles Anterolateral group, these deep muscles you included with the Calves had me googling all over the place! Their tendons are seen in the foot muscles lesson and I feel are important to know for the obsessive anatomy students haha! This is why your content is Premium <3

Awesome! I´ve been recently reviewing the Hamstring lessons and when it comes to quickly reviewing, your PDF E-books are one of the most valuable resources! I can´t wait for the Ebook on the Lower Leg! I left a comment on one of the 3D models about a muscle I believe will be important to include that is not mentioned in the video lessons, by the way. Thank you and your team for all the hard work you people do to help us master Anatomy!

I see that the Flexor Digitorum Longus muscle is added here, which continues the form below the Soleus above it. This one along with the Flexor Hallucis Longus and others are not mentioned in other lessons. Of course I can see how they don´t really affect the form much, but I feel that the Flexor Digitorum Longus is definitely something that should be included in the lower leg muscles eBook when you make it.

I find the arm muscles lessons really challenging overall, and I'm sure to go back to them a lot of times before getting the hang of it.

Hey there! Goo effort I see! I believe that what will help you most is simplification. Go back to square one for direction. Have you got the figure drawing course? Practice gesture and then add the anatomy on it ONLY if you feel it will carry the pose forward. Simplify and continue to practice no matter how hard it gets, take breaks too! Go enjoy life! Come back with a fresh mind and take another crack at it! Persistence is key! Wish you the best of luck!

Here is my work for the Extreme Angles assignment. I decided to "box" some of the heads to make perspective a little bit easier. Please let me know how I can improve!

How are you? I´m not sure if this was posted minutes or months ago. I see a struggle with convincingly making a sphere and attaching a plane for the face. What will help you is the youtube videos by Stan, where he shows the way Perspective applies to the head. It took me MONTHS to get Perspective into my subconscious BUT there are tonnes of good books on it you can download, preferrably I would recommend Marshall Vandruff and his old perspective courses as well as Ernesto Wattson and his perspective made easy books. With these fundamentals down you will have a MUCH MUCH easier time tackling something as complex as the human face. Don´t be afraid to practice at least an hour a day and give it a week or two to start really feeling it! Best of luck!!!

This reminds me of that time in the podcast where you shared that it is hard to begin exercising but the reward is phenomenal later. Due to it being painful first, it is a virtue. When drawing, measuring takes a lot of brain power, lots of patience, and concentration. It is not fun, well maybe for certain cultures it can be, but the rewards from measuring are immense. Learning to see your mistakes and investing a good deal of time to the measurement will yield tremendous pleasure when rendering because you can just let it all flow at that point, confident that things are in the right place!

Key word here is try! It is an absurd amount of work if you do every single assignment. I can't wait to see how far your passion takes you, and hey you might set a sort of record to beat sport here lol. Best of luck!

Hello Proko, I am wondering whether you can cover the Cubital Fossa? which is that little triangular dimple located between the Biceps, Ridge muscle, and Pronator Teres. How it forms and other properties, thanks.

Thanks for bringing that up! I found that if you study the biceps, and the forearm muscles, then google some images about the Cubital Fossa, you will get pretty much all you need to know to understand that form. I wasn´t even aware of it, but after doing some googling I was enlightened. Thank you again!!!

It looks like the names are mixed up in the PDF with the Sartorius and the TFL

Thank you Stan, for continuing to generate premium content for the anatomy course. I´m about three months in and viewing and reviewing lessons as well as the PDFs is tremendous help in tackling the monumental task of learning anatomy. Blessings for your family!

I would like to provide some feedback on the shoulder muscle videos as well as the anatomy course in general. I would say that the course could benefit with a bit of restructuring, specifically adding some advance information on any muscles that surround an area we are studying. Specifically here, what I found is, to get the most out of the lessons related to the PECTORALIS MAJOR and the shoulder muscles in general; I had to study the DELTOID on my own, and skip ahead to the DELTOID section of the Arms course. Perhaps it would be of help to add extra review options for the surrounding muscles between certain lessons. I honestly don´t know what the most elegant solution would be, since the very nature of the intertwining anatomical parts makes it difficult as it is, and you are surely doing an OUTSTANDING job.

the only way I was somewhat able to get the angle I wanted was by dragging the model to the top right corner BTW. Thank you for your excellent models!

I would like to submit feedback on the rotation of the 3D models. The axis that we are allowed to rotate the model in make it difficult to tilt to a forward bending position. I hope there is an update where we can navigate the camera instead of tilting the object. Help me if the function is already there. Thank you!

Hey there! If anything, it´s great practice for tonal value control. And you had fun drawing a subject you like, did you not? So take it as fun practice. If you can take a general posed Loomis head, or skull in the same position, you can use this drawing to identify what you can improve. This makes it more like deliberate practice. When you are up to it, try making the portrait again but focus on fixing the areas of improvement first, such as the general proportions, angles of alignment and so on. Great effort!!!

Here is my Shading assignment. This drawing is the culmination of everything I learned from this course. Do you guys think I’m ready for the anatomy course?

Go for it! I see great promise in your effort. Through repeated practice you can only keep getting better. I´m studying the anatomy course alongside the figure drawing course, and even the portrait drawing one! It helps not get bored and burned out when you can jump between subjects. The time between subjects helps let the brain do its thing in the background, and when you review it all, it will surely make more sense and become more a part of your personal knowledge library. Don´t be afraid to check out other fundamentals! Of course recommend stick to something at least 20 minutes and really intentionally study it, but there is nothing wrong with mixing it up!

Your effort really shows! I am practicing the simple head most of all since it is a lot faster to finish. I hope you learned a lot!

Art is an explosion. Art is something that blossoms for an instant before withering away. It is beauty that lasts for just a moment. You have to feel art. And true art... is an explosion. My dream job is to create art that literally explodes.

Forget about the "Job" part of it. Needless of money, I would love to give free art lessons for children, young adults, and people of all ages. I feel that a lot of people´s abilities are not ever fulfilled because there is no one near by to help them learn about the principles of art, or they cannot afford it. Art should be something available to everyone who wishes to pursue it as their passion, no matter how deep, and I would love to help give more people that opportunity. So if I had financial independence, I would be a pro bono art educator, and advocate for free art education for the community at large.
