A lot of people have been noting me things about anatomy, like how I learned, can I help, and so on and so forth. Now I am happy to answer any and all questions you have regarding the matter but here are some questions that pop up quite frequently.
Q: How did you learn anatomy?
A Ahah, it was a very long and arduous journey. Once upon a time I belonged to an oekaki group (I was 10), and in that group I submitted a picture of a dog (I think) and someone told me my anatomy sucked face (they were right). Now at the time, said someone was a pretty good artist in comparison. So when they said my anatomy sucked, I took it to heart. Instead of letting their rude comment get to me, I decided I'd kick their ass and become 10,000 times better than they were at this "anatomy". Moral of the story... I AM BETTER NOW *EVIL LAUGHTER*.
But yes, that's what got me started... as for how I learned... I drew my dogs and my cat a lot back when I was 11ish. Then when I started on humans I would just go look in a mirror. That's right I would pose and crap in front of a mirror, don't judge me.
Q: How would you suggest I learn?
A Draw a lot, and I mean a lot! I draw almost everyday as art is some what of an addiction for me lmao.
Some people do drugs, I do art.
I also suggest investing in a full body mirror. It helps a lot! Or find a friend whose willing to be your test dummy. I also studied skeletons and the muscle structure, but I have to say what taught me the most about human anatomy are silhouettes. I just memorized what it's generally suppose to look like and just filled it in from there. So I work out then in.
Q: How does one hand/neck/feet.
A I have no idea... that there is the million dollar question. You just die and they appear. I'm not sure. Thinkin, black magic. As I am a white wizard, hands/neck/feet are beyond my study. DIE IN A FIRE *table flip*
Q: Any other tips?
A The bodies kinda fun in the it has a lot of markers and similarities. Such as the scapula is the same size as the hand, which is the same size as the sternum. Arms also reach down to about half way on the thigh when standing. The elbow reach to about the waist, just between the rib cage and the pelvis. Legs are equal to the top half of the body. Ankles should always be positioned below the head for balance (this is true %50 of the time lol). There's hardly any space between the ribcage and the pelvis. Men's ribcages are larger than women's. Women have large hips than ribcages. The widest part of the lower body is higher on men than on women.
Note: I've never taken an anatomy class so this could all be horribly horribly wrong. It's just what I've noticed.
If there's anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask ; v ;
