Anatomy Reference Practice Thread *SFW with nudity*
This thread is made so people can practice anatomy, look at the practice of other users and can look at their improvement through time.
For this, we are going to place pictures of people, who must be used to capture the anatomy, volume, dimensions, the form and the silhouette, without being stained by styles. The other way to work, and preferred ones you have mastered or learned the first, is colors, using the images as a reference for color, light and shading.
You donít need to be perfect, sketches, raw draws, everything is good, the main goal is to capture the anatomy, the shapes and the structure of an individual. So over production on the work is not needed; painting can wait ones you control in a better level what you are drawing, and so shading.
You don't need to draw the whole bodies, even so is recommended; this is because going in details in certain parts of the human body, trying to capture the shape in certain parts of the body, is as equally good than doing a overall body.
You don't need to be afraid on drawing body parts, neither to censor. As this is for anatomy practice and this is an art forum, I believe there is an agreement between users and the medium ones we deal with human body.
Again, this thread is about studying anatomy, not to be used as a reference for actions to your own personal style, neither to bend the bodies on the pictures on a personal style. Itís all for the sake of human anatomy.
Sexual pornographic material are not allowed, as this is a thread to learn about anatomy, not to sexualized, objetivize or gave sexual intentions to the human body.
Tips, try to pick one or two pictures, focus on those, work them, and post your results here. Go slow, ask here for critiques and help, look at other who have picked pictures similar to yours and see what can you take from them. Feed yourself from the products of others.
