i sort of wanted to ask this after i saw the answer of your previous question. after learning the torso, what should be after that? and so forth?

The truth is there is no set plan to learn how to draw and most drawing books are the best way that the artist learned how build up a figure. Personally I’d say start with the torso as a base and work from there, but many other people might say start from the head, so I encourage you to experiment and find the most comfortable way for you! 

To answer your question, figure out a body part you have trouble drawing the most and practise that! Whether it be the legs one day or arms/head/feet/hands the next, just keep on practising and drawing at least a little bit everyday.

Hi, im a HUGE newbie to anatomy, I dont think its humanly possible to be posed like how i draw bodies, so I was wondering if you could tell me what I should learn how to draw first?

Learn to draw the torso! It’s a great place to start. You can use a variety of different methods, one of my favourite’s, the bean method from Proko (you can check our archive for a video) will help you build up a dynamic torso which will help create poses and create a base for the limbs. 

I recommend just drawing out a few pages of beans and adding stick limbs to get a rough idea of what you want to draw.

here is my latest project

Anatomy of fruits and vegetables

study after burne hogarth dynamic anatomy

Excellent use of Burne Hogarths dynamic anatomy! You really get a better understanding of the shapes used to build up muscle in Hogarths works.

Oh man, this is great. Muscular women are really hard to get accurate references for.

osteologika:

eSkeletons is run by the University of Texas at Austin, and they’ve been good enough to upload images of various bones (in several views), of several species of primates, both human and non-human. They also have taxonomic trees, and a comparative anatomy section where you can specify which taxa, which bones, and which views you’re interested in.

I found this website on a list of recommended resources for my anatomy course, and it’s been rather helpful, so I thought I’d share.

Always reblog eSkeletons.

My art teacher said that studying anatomy from drawings isn't as good and won't teach me as much as studying anatomy from a live figure. Is my studying from drawings inferior?
Asketh - fruutie568

Your teacher is right! Your drawings aren’t so much as inferior, rather they lack a sense of depth to them, or they probably don’t show full understanding of how the figure works. I find personally that figures drawn without a live model tend to come out flat and static. With live figure studying you get a better knowledge on how the form moves and you learn to understand what you are drawing. After taking life drawing classes for awhile I’ve noticed that I can draw faster as well. 

If you can, try to take a life drawing class, either in school or taught by a professional outside of class. It will be tough at first, but once you get into the swing of it you’ll really benefit!

You can even download the model and throw all sorts of lighting on it in your program of choice.
Thanks to Joakim Hellstedt for always enriching my life with awesome things. Would be friend again. 10/10.
