Art Anatomy Made Easy: For Fine Artists, Illustrators, Manga And Comic Book Artists
Fine Artists (who work with the figure), Illustrators, Comics and Manga Artists MUST have a solid grasp of art anatomy if they hope to reach to their artistic goals!
Don’t waste years in trial and error, cobbling together your understanding of the figure through tons of separate books (that’s what I and many artists have done), and don’t be intimidated or confused by the latin names of the various parts of the body.
The truth is…
Art anatomy is not the same as medical anatomy, and, as an artist, there are many bones and muscles that you can, and even SHOULD ignore. Since the days of Michelangelo, artists have GROUPED separate muscles into functional groups for the purposes of picture-making. You can actually ruin a drawing by over-rendering of anatomy, turning your drawing into a medical illustration rather than a work of art.
If you have the right teacher to break it all down for you, there’s actually much less to learn than you may think. It’s been said that the major muscle groups of the body are about the same number as the letters of the alphabet. I can teach you the simplified "alphabet" of the human figure, using easy, color-coded charts.
