I met up with that local sketching group this past weekend, & this time we went to a natural history museum. That meant lots & lots of bones & fossils! I’m a little rusty when it comes to drawing bones, so this was great practice.
Now I’m back with another skeleton hand – this time a side view of the right hand. Like the last one, I’m pretty pleased with this. I think my shading has improved on these particular drawings that I copy from my anatomy book (I’m drawing other paintings/drawings of bones). Add some flesh to this & I’m sure it would be tricky – I’ll have to keep this kind of pose in mind the next time I draw my own hands.
Another quick post today with more Loomis studies, pretty much the same as yesterday. This one above is a partially muscled mannikin skeleton, just showing how the muscle is laid on. Continue reading
I had some time to draw during lunch today (I had an especially long lunch), so here is more stuff from Atlas of Human Anatomy For the Artist. Yeah, it can be a bit of a dull subject to draw, but I’m hoping eventually I’ll absorb some of it.
The past few days have been really busy, and I’m sorry for not updating! However, I have definitely been drawing at least a little everyday. In this post, I’m including 3 days of gesture drawings (this past Friday, Saturday & Sunday) as well as some quick anatomical studies of the arm as you can see from above, which I drew from Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist.
So I can say I successfully completed Day 1 of my April challenge to draw (& write music) everyday. Last night I mostly focused on more anatomy, as you can see above in my drawing of the joints of the right elbow. It was kind of rushed on the shading, but looking at it the next day, it turned out better than I thought last night.
