Anatomy for Artists – Misconceptions and excuses

If you want to draw human figures and portraits realistically, there’s one skill you must have – knowledge of human anatomy.

There are some misconceptions and excuses that often keep art students from learning about anatomy.

In this video, you will find out what they are and how to overcome them.

Let’s bust these erroneous beliefs one by one.

Erroneous belief 1:

Some say that it is not necessary to know human anatomy to draw figurative artworks.

That might be so, if you don’t want your drawings to look professional.

Even if you are copying from photos, knowledge of anatomy will help you accurately depict the three-dimensional nature of a body.

Knowledge of anatomy cannot be underestimated when it comes to drawing realistic figures from life, memory, and imagination.

Professional artists draw what they know, not what they see. That is why good figurative artwork depends greatly on how well you know human anatomy.

Erroneous belief 2:

Portrait artists do not need to know full human anatomy.

If you draw and paint portraits only, you still need to know the anatomy of the entire body, not just the head.

One day, you might want to include the model’s neck and shoulders, or their hands.

Even the most perfectly painted face would not look good if it is incorrectly connected to the body.

Erroneous belief 3:

It is hard to learn human anatomy.

Learning anatomy can be enjoyable, exciting, and easy! It just depends on how you learn it.

One way is to read boring books for medical students. Another way, however, is to find out all you need to know by watching our easy-to-follow Anatomy Master Class video lessons!

Erroneous belief 4:

You need to know every bone and muscle in the human body.

You are an artist, not a doctor, so you don’t have to learn every single bone and muscle.

In the Anatomy Master Class, you will discover what you really need to know.

Not every bone and muscle influences how the body looks, so you will only learn those that matter for creating fine art.

Erroneous belief 5:

You need to know Latin names of bones and muscles.

That’s might be true for a medical student, but not for you.

In the Anatomy Master Class lessons, you will hear common names that you already know.

You don’t have to learn any Latin names, unless you want to.

For those who do, all technical terminology is conveniently displayed as subtitles.

Erroneous belief 6:

You need to study real skeletons and cadavers.

Not at all. You are learning how to draw, not how to become a surgeon.

It is perfectly possible to learn what you need to know about anatomy just by watching the Anatomy Master Class video lessons.

Erroneous belief 7:

It is so overwhelming even to start learning anatomy.

Learning anatomy doesn’t need to be intimidating.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to learn human anatomy in the Anatomy Master Class. Anatomy for artists is explained in a very friendly way – just sit back, relax and enjoy the video lessons!

For the best results, you might want to pause the video from time to time and make a sketch or two.
