Question from Sabrina, Drawing Academy student
Please find enclosed some of my artwork – there is one finished inked piece and a page from my sketchbook. Now I’m more into a manga art style and drawing comics, but I’d like to master traditional anatomy to improve my work, since I often feel stuck on various poses or perspectives. Recently, I studied muscles and tried to keep this in mind while drawing, but I still have the feeling that my characters look stiff, especially their arms and legs.
Do you have some tips on what I could do, specifically, and do your courses contain parts where I should be extra careful, considering my weaknesses?
Thanks a lot for your time and with friendly greetings,
Anatomy Master Class feedback from the course graduate
Painter Stephanie-Gabrielle Sneed
Mostly, I am a Painter, yet painting is based on drawing in its foundation. I suppose my level would be incredible potential. I have made drawings prior, yet after taking the course I was thrilled with the knowledge Anatomy Master Class offers. The clear instruction was awesome. I love how the course is based in traditional, classical methods. I enrolled because I wanted to be able to draw figures in any position. Additionally, the lifetime access to the lectures and demonstrations is a true plus.
It’s been a dream the Anatomy Master Class. I have learned human proportions, skeletal and muscular anatomy. Additionally, via the lectures/ demonstrations I have learned methods of drawing anatomy which have tied into the Drawing Academy of which I’m also taking.
The new knowledge will be in every drawing and painting I create. Now, I will be able to understand if the body is turned this way then the position should be this way and the musculature would be like this, for example. I’m able now to understand how to create poses and what happens to the skeleton and muscles in the pose or movement.
Good addition to the Drawing Academy
As a physician, I knew a human anatomy pretty well, but it was a different knowledge that is required for drawing human figures…
Human figure skeleton
I have been working on drawing a skeleton and muscles of a human figure. The skeleton was fairly easy, but muscles were to hard to grasp all at once.
I did my best to get proportions of the figure right. The feet are the hardest to get correct then the hands. And foreshortening of legs gave me trouble too. I used my own statue of Poseidon as a visual reference.

The most important thing in learning drawing human figures is to keep practicing
