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.
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.
I’ve been wanting to get back to my anatomy book, so I did this drawing of a right radius & ulna (from in front on the left, from in back on the right) on Sunday. It looks like I haven’t done any anatomy in about a month! That’s hard for me to believe – but it looks like I mostly focused on Andrew Loomis stuff in March. That sort of counts as anatomy, I think.
Busy day today, so I got my drawing in during my lunch break. Since I didn’t have a lot of time, I decided to practice on the mannikins. Kind of an off day today, but ah well. Don’t even ask me what’s going on with that one on the right’s feet, ’cause I really don’t know.
And here’s another: Continue reading
Wasn’t feeling well last night, so I do most of this in the morning & finished it up during my lunch break. The title is slightly misleading, as these aren’t entirely scapula studies – it’s also the arm, clavicle, a little bit of the rib cage, etc. But mostly how the scapula & arm work together, I guess.
Like with those torso studies, here are some drawings of the clavicle. The basic idea behind the shape is that the two curved clavicles make sort of a cupid’s bow shape, when simplified.
On another note, I really love those Blackwing 602s. I love the line quality I can get out of them!
I decided to do some more anatomy yesterday – I had a little bit of time in between jobs. So this is a drawing of the joints of the right shoulder. I feel like my clavicle might be too big & the head of the arm bone a bit too compact. I’ll probably be focusing on this area for a little while longer.
