Quickposes: pose library for figure & gesture drawing practice Artistic Anatomy Is learning to draw anatomy in a classroom more secure (since there is a teacher to check the work and possibly a book to study from) in practicing artistic anatomy drawing, or should artists focus on just practicing from images on websites/blogs like this tumblr? Asketh - pjmx24 Depending on the size of your class and where you are, your teacher can be a great guide to help you and show you what areas you need to focus on more to improve and give you good material to work from! If your class size is too big (ideally a class of no more than 15 is optimal for a teacher to give extensive feedback to all students) you might not get enough feedback to really improve as much as possible to your full potential. Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Even a page a week of studying will help you improve. Hope that gives you some insight!

L’Outil typographique - Sommaire Human Anatomy for the Artist The hand The hands are a notorious source of frustration. This section won't concentrate on the muscle structure, since the hand is very complex in this regard, and knowing this won't help much in drawing them. Instead, we'll look at proportions, range of motion, and possible simplifications. Structure and proportions Figure 2.20. Bone structure and proportions of the hand There is a very easy and surprisingly accurate way to remember the proportions of an adult's hand. The palm of the hand houses the metacarpal bones. The palm of the hand can be simplified to a box. Figure 2.21. Notice that the box does not line up with the contour of the fingers. The two black arrows in the previous figure show how the little finger can move up and down. Figure 2.22. Take a look at some examples of how to use this model: Figure 2.23. The first one is a relaxed pose. This is certainly not the only way to draw a hand.

Human Anatomy for the Artist While the ventral side of the forearm is not actually less complicated than the dorsal side, it appears so because few of its muscles show clearly. Compared to the dorsal side of the forearm, the ventral surface is smooth and uncomplicated. The ventral side of a vertebrate is generally considered its "underbelly"-- paler and less hairy than its dorsal counterpart because of fewer hair follicles and less melanin production. But the distal end of the ventral forearm does have a few prominent surface landmarks. Let's back up a little. If both the flexor carpi radialis tendon and the palmaris long tendon are visible, it's easy to tell one from the other; the flexor carpi radialis tendon is more toward the radial (thumb) side of the arm, as its name implies. The palmaris longus tendon is also more superficial than the flexor carpi radialis tendon because it runs outside the annular ligament, while all the other wrist tendons run deep to it. Do you have the palmaris longus muscle?
