Here’s some awesome figure drawing and anatomy tips, tricks and tutorials by an awesome artist named Bryan Lee or http://funkymonkey1945.deviantart.com/ Follow him on DeviantArt, His work is awesome. Anyhoo sorry in advance that the pics are not in any order and i have more to post, just right click and save the photos in your reference folder if you have one (Every artist should have one BTW). He was nice enough to give me permission for posting them on my Tumblr. Please do your jobs as aspiring artists to reblog this post and the next one to all of your artist friends in the Tumblrverse, ” Knowledge is meant to be shared.” is what Mr. Lee said to me, lets follow his quote
Can’t remember where I found this, but from the watermark I can only assume the source is ImagineFX magazine, the September 2008 issue.
If this gets enough notes I’ll caption each photo with the text displayed in each page! (‘Tis a bit small. Curse you, tumblr, get some better zoom! <shakes fist>)
One of my all time favorite anatomy references is this handy dandy little webpage here. More than 750+ male and female photos in sequence? check. Outstanding b/w lighting on all of them? check. All SFW images but enough skin showing where the muscle placement is? check. Contortion, fencing, parkour and other poses included? checkity-check.
All of that for free? Aw yeah.
Go take a look around. ;D
Ok I was recently reminded that this exists (i-I think someone DA-famous linked it or something because WHAT) and I think this may be relevant to tumblr’s interests so here’s my~female body variation tutorial~ whoo~
This came from some things I scribbled down when I was trying to keep my character designs consistent, and I realised that it kinda made me see bodies/proportions somewhat differently so I pasted it into this smarmy old tutorial, now cut up into (I hope) tumblr-friendly chunks so right-click for full size I think? (disclaimer: I don’t know anything and it is so far past my bedtime that it’s been tomorrow for a whole day so I’m going to nap and then maybe regret posting this.)
