Upper Torso Drawing With Contour Lines

Upper Torso Drawing With Contour Lines

Drawing by Daniel, Anatomy Master Class student

This is a drawing of a male upper torso with some of the surface anatomy of the back and arm rendered. Also I have added a contour exercise overlaid on the same image to get a sense of the depths and elevations that exist in this twisted position across the entire torso and the back of the arm…

Figure of a Man

Figure of a Man

Drawing by Daniel, Anatomy Master Class student

This is really just an exercise in charcoal that is purposely left incomplete, that is without a full rendering of value. The idea is to represent three dimensional form of the male figure (Rear view) by only a partial implementation of value on the arm and left back and then to show the anatomical structures elsewhere using line only…

Critique by Vladimir London, Drawing Academy tutor

Hi Carl,

Thank you very much for your artwork. I like it a lot.

You have a distinctive and recognizable style, which is very important for an original fine artist. Well done.

There are some areas for improvement though. I think your skills will benefit from a deeper knowledge of a human anatomy and a human body proportions…

Anatomy drawing skills in doctor’s practice

Anatomy drawing skills in doctor’s practice

Drawings and feedback from Dr. Valérie Julie Brousseau

Here are two anatomical studies in red pencil for which my aim was to review relative anatomy and work on drawing skills and rendering shades. These are my two first experiments with red. I liked it but found it challenging: it does not forgive – just like surgery!

I based myself on an anatomy book which I knew well. But it is not the same to draw as to look: the relationships of structures become more obvious with drawing as one needs to think of exactly where everything fits on to bone etc. I shall send you more as I go along… I am hoping to try silver point soon: am just getting the material together, it is not easy… Thanks for the videos, they are great.

I have already subscribed to your Drawing Academy Course and have really enjoyed it. Which is why I could not resist trying the Anatomy one. I always dreamt of doing oils one day, as I work on my skills with your help, this day may be closer than I thought! …
