Muscle! Ooo...

'Tis me, not quite as buff as Tomby was in that pic he did... But at least I have wrists =P

Anyway, I'm aware of a couple of things wrong with the pic... The left arm looks off, the hands in general look screwy, I forgot to draw the glove on the left hand, the ears look pretty naff... Anyone else care to point out my mistakes? =P Or even better, give me a bit of constructive criticism.

And now for sometips in drawing (Modem style)

Postby Modem » Tue Jul 29, 2003 11:47 pm

Some good tips:

If you want the real body look, study the human body (Muscle tones, arm lengths, etc.)

The size of the head (depending on who or what your drawing) usually is a hand and a half long (Length of the hand and half of it).

The entire body composition is about 7 to 8 heads long from top to bottom.

The upper arm (bicep) is about a head and a half (top of shoulder to bottom joint). The forearm is about 2 and a half heads (top of elbow joint to fingertips [hand is outstretched])

The elbow joints meet at the abdomen, and the wrist joints meet about halfway of the pelvis.

Upper legs are about the size of the upper arm (a little bit bigger), and the lower leg is about the size of the lower arm (forearm).

The feet is about the size of the forearm alone (joint to joint, no hand).

And like I said for muscle tone, study the human body muscle, it'll really help.

These are the guidlines I follow. You don't have to neccesarily do it this way, but it's just a helping hand, dat's all.

Obey the Modem. Oh, and if you want to see these expressed in picture, go to this site and check in the book section. Andrew Loomis's book, "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth" has been very useful as a resource. I look back to it very often. It helps to save the parts you think you'll want to look at again. ^^

Perspective is another thing entirely, but VERY important to us Macrophiles, eh, everyone?

There are entire books on perspective. I should get one... But I'm busy, so I'll procrastinate- um- have to wait.

Goodness. I sound like I know what I'm talking about. I'm as clueless as an innoscent bystander. I just... doodle. A lot. But... one day...
