Male Anatomy Study - Critique



This is my first anatomy study and it was based mostly on great book Zbrush: Human Anatomy by Scott Spencer.

I would greatly appreciate comments and critique that would help me to improve in the future.

Also a link to more angles on the sculpture (pdf file):

This is unfinished. It needs refined sculpting and much more attention paid to the anatomy, especially the arms and legs. Right now, this looks like you took a preexisting model with a less muscular physique and warped out the arms and legs into their current unrefined state. Did you start this from scratch or use a ready-made base mesh? I’d suggest working with a less hypertrophied musculature and go with a more normal athletic build, to get the anatomy down before going for the muscular mutant build.
Lastly, study anatomy and use good photo reference to observe how the body is put together instead of another artist’s interpretation.

I did it from scratch and it took me quite a lot of time. I is after all my first anatomy study. I realise that I am only beggining to understand it so I really appreciate and need some feedback from someone else than relatives.

It was a bit of a cold shower but I will take your advice and try to do better next time. The reason that I did so muscular version was that I thought that I should get to know muscles and bones first and it would be easier if they are more pronounced.

Remember to draw what you see, or in this case model what you see. im not sure if you ever have been n a figure drawing class, but dont be afraid to look at your live model. Thats what they are there for...
