Female Anatomy

This time I took a different approach to my anatomy studies. For one I used a female subject. But more importantly, instead of just trying to map out where the muscles were, as I did in the previous studies, I tried to render the bones and muscles more realistically. Also I used finer pointed pencils and two colors. Red for muscles blue for bones. It makes the final drawing much easier to 'read'. I wish I had the idea for the previous anatomy studies.

Register Paper masterpeices

A note of caution before scrolling down. Some of these cartoons are explicit, restaurant workers have twisted minds so remember to tip your bartender.
Here is a couple weeks worth of bartending downtime. Drawings to entertain myself and the waitstaff during slow nights.

A man came in with a penis-head haircut. I drew this diagram to explain to the waitress what a penis-head haircut is. This was a textbook case. He had the sides of his head shaved and everything. Worst part about this monstrosity is that he had his son's hair styled in the same way.
This was debbed "The Olympic Testicle" By the waiter. Not what I was going for. I don't even know what the things I draw are supposed to be.

Don't zoom in on this one.

Muscles - Back view

The human body is a complex, elegantly designed, beautiful machine. I still don't completely understand it and I probably never will. But, exercises like this get me closer.

Comics for Citypaper

Citypaper is running a comic issue, calling for submissions. Here are my submissions in color and greyscale. As you can tell I really need to work on my photoshop skills.


Here is the continuation of the bones exercise. This time I draw out the skeleton on tracing paper over the figure drawing, Then I draw the muscles over the bones. Most muscles are easier to draw because they can are closer to the skin. However the muscular system is extremely complex making it quite tricky, especially the forearms and lower legs.
