View Full Version : Sketchbook Thread of Baruch Oltman

Finally going to start focusing on one of my worst and most feared aspects of art. I have never really attempted to learn anatomy until now, it has always been guesswork on the few characters I have used. I want to bundle lighting work into this as well and hopefully in some months come out with a strong foundation in anatomy and build from there. I am using Loomis for proportion/posing and just anatomy illustrations to learn the muscle/bone structure. My poses are going to start out more or less in anatomical position and get more advanced later. Nothing you say can hurt my feelings so crit all you want whenever you want and i can only learn from it :).

I will be posting both digital and pencil work.

Here are some proportion practices I still have a lot of work ahead of me.

:) I went back to the opposing curves tutorial and really like the technique. I'm starting to figure out how it works, anyways I've been mostly sketching parts of the skeleton from "Human Anatomy For Artists" a few views every day. I am going to start focusing on the structure of the muscles. I ordered The Structure of man a few days ago looking forward to that. Heres a Master copy of David. I have lots of little sketches I'll scan them in sometime but for now just trying to build up my understanding of how the body works.

The pic has some big proportion issues.
