Dynamic Muscle Groups by Rivalhopeso Dynamic Muscle Groups by Rivalhopeso
I'm pretty pleased with this. i used a reference from a book i have on my shelf xD called 'dynamic figure drawing' by Burne Holgarn (i think) i figured if i can understand how the anatomy works in a very detailed way and how the muscles interact with the skeleton, whne i come to creating my own human form in a stylised way (manga) it'll have a lot more accuracy and feel much more natural to look at.

unfortunately, al the references in this book, are of people who have an awful lot of muscle so drawing someone who is slimmer may have to be down to me guessing what should be decreased. lol...

Do you think the title is ok? very unimaginative but i was really stuck lol..

Please Critique or comment or something to tell me what you think!!! please please xD

p.s. lol i know he's naked and that doesn't make me gay, and yes i know that him squatting like that should require some form of potty beneath him but i was trying to be professional about it!!

I think you've really got the concept of human anatomy down to an art! Quite litterally!

While in College (some years ago now) I had to do life drawing which wasn't so bad but she was called Sandra and she was late 60's ...so how I always managed to get her ass and found myself becoming too familiar with every rincle and soon enough began to realise what a difficult concept it actually is to draw anatomy along side details, proportions and of course shading.


I really like how you've enhanced the muscular shape with dark tones and I think his left foot is amazing you've really done that and the toes brilliantly which is then enhanced by the lef leading up to his bum and then the small of his back and upwards.

You've done very well in capturing the lighting and the shading on the left side and benith although I would have thought the right foot would have been a lot darker... I'd also like to have seen a fourarm sticking through the gap between the leg and chest but that's just personal opinion. Also a little more shading behind the ear but over all you've done wonderfully. Keep it up and I'm sure we can expect great things from you as human anatomy is key for all characters based upon the human form.

Well done.
What do you think?

hm not too sure what you mean. with really muscular men they get a lot going on around that region lol so it becomes more squarish. i think i messed up the calf muscle which may distort the knee but also he is squatting in a way his leg are apart so maybe the bent knee at that angle looks funny xD thanks for the kind comment xD

That's some pretty impressive anatomy. You did a good job shading the muscles.
