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!
What You’ll Learn
The structure of the skeleton, its joints and landmarks helps you with proportions and drawing the body in motion
The origin and insertion (attachments) of muscles helps you place the muscles in the right spot and draw the right shapes
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
Cross sections help you visualize the layering of muscles
Variation / 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!
Premium videos will be longer, covering more information about each muscle and including more of the deeper muscles. You’ll get to see more examples and drawing demonstrations.
Demos & Examples
More example drawings and real-time demonstrations. Most of us are visual learners (we’re artists!), so hearing it explained is not enough. We have to see it many times.
Assignments & Answers
A variety of exercises to help you learn the information. I will actually show you how to do the assignment so that you can check your work.
There’s an ebook version of each lesson that you can download as a PDF. Print them out or keep them on your device so you can quickly review the lessons.
Students that follow along with new videos and submit assignments have a chance to be in critique videos. After critique videos are made, students can email me for private critiques.
You will be able to see 3D models corresponding to every lesson.. In your browser! No need to download any software. These will help you study the anatomy further and it’s a great aid for the assignments.
