added comment in3D Model: External Obliques
It would be nice to be able to download these as an .obj file or something. As long as theyre on this site it's not necessary, but It might be good to have them as downloads. I just want to emphasize though that this course is so good, I've been using it for well over a year.
I have a question about the pelvis. I'm posting it here, but part of my question can be seen in the videos on spine anatomy. When Skelly bends over to touch his toes, the entire pelvis is pushed backward. I'm having trouble wrapping my head around why this happens. I know the spine can lean forward or arch forward without that happening, but It seems impossible for normal forward bending over to happen without this pushing back kind of cupping motion of the pelvis and I'm not sure how to really understand what is causing that to happen. Maybe its the innervation the muscles to cause this motion to happen. It feels like the gluteal muscles have to relax and the knees have to lock, but Im trying to understand this motion better as it directly effects imagining the pose of the pelvis correctly. Any help is indeed appreciated.

I would just say that when you ghost the rest of the body, spend a little more time with proportion or position. I'm looking at that 3rd one in particular. The focused forms look good though.

Lines look nice and clean but the femur needs a longer neck for that greater trochanter

In the first one, lots of form in the back lost in the shading, The roundness of the rib cage leaning back seems flattened by the lines of your shading. The furrow created at the tendon of the latisimus that curve around to the obliques seems like just a simple small crease line, the overall height of the figure is foreshortened indicating a large backward lean, but the anatomy doesn't show it well. The second one indicates that you seem to be in a rush. Try to ask yourself what part you're trying to draw and where does it jut off to in 3D space, this is a lot easier than it sounds if you use the proko anatomy course, or even the free proko anatomy videos on here and on youtube. It may help to always position your drawings so that they force you to draw at least one thing in perspective, that isn't just a flat plane with a relief on it. In the first drawing you seem to want your character to be leaning, like a figure skater and for the legs to be posed with some depth with one behind the other, but realize that your butt and pelvis is too static for the legs to do that. I made a little corrective drawing. I know this is 11 months old.

Hi this is my first post. Im looking for anatomy of fat throughout the body. I notice that some ecorche models sometimes seem incorrect because they seem to include fat where there be none in volume of the figure. I don't mind if this information is secreted in an anatomy course as long as I know its there ahead of time. Hope you understand what Im looking for. Thanks
