Research Point – Part 2:
Look at anatomy books, or do a web search for anatomy images and see what you can find. Make notes on how you can use this information to improve your figure drawing. Try to do an anatomical drawing yourself.
Notes made in sketch book:
I didn’t want to just copy a diagram from a book, so decided to take one of my quick sketches of the model and try to work the skeletal structure into it myself, following the general anatomy. I drew a faint, rough outline of the pose and then tried to show how the bones would sit in that pose. It was interesting that it seemed to work, it may not be absolutely accurate but it does give a good idea of the positioning. It was fun to do if not slightly macabre to imagine one’s husband as a skeleton sitting on your sofa!
