Working on anatomy mornings and afternoons for the past 3 weeks at my Atelier. Let me show you some of what I’ve done.
More skeleton drawing from the model:
Some block-ins and rendering, just to remind myself those things still exist:
And finally, more anatomical drawings, this time building muscles and a skeleton after drawing the figure in a certain pose:
I am working on this one with an anatomy book open beside me, putting on one muscle after another, taking note of their function and appearance in key areas.
And an early stage: Analyzing the perspective of the figure (how the planes and volumes of the figure are oriented in space in relation to the viewer):
I find anatomy fascinating. I have such reverence to the human figure and how our bodies work. 3 more weeks of anatomy – the next ones will cover areas of anatomy I know less about. I expect it to be a difficult and interesting learning experience.
P.S. I decided to start spelling my name this way sometimes instead of “Ifat” to help explain its pronunciation.
