Hey all.  Thanks for all the questions and messages.  Sorry it's taking long to get back to some of you.  I've been really busy lately with teaching, work and study.  Been extremely frustrated with things and am working on getting my head together :)

Cheers

Bryan

I have a question if you do not mind me asking. What are some tips you can offer for learning anatomy. I have been doing gestures for quite some time now getting into breaking the torso down into simple boxes. But I believe gaining more information of more methods, can aid into finding the ones which works best.

So yeah, what advice you would offer when it comes to figure drawing, portraits etc. For someone who doesn't have the luxury for lets say figure drawing workshops (none over where I live)
Thanks for answering my question!

There's a few options you have for learning anatomy.  You can do studies off anatomy books and then look at models/photo reference of those areas and try to locate the muscles.  You can do draw overs with tracing paper to identify the anatomy.  You can look at old masters like michaelangelo and do master copies.  Have an anatomy book open so you can see how the old masters used anatomy to convey form.  You can see a lot of eggs and boxes when looking at michaelangelo most masters.  They use anatomy to hide their tracks.

The other method which I highly reccomendation is to make a sculpture.  I've made 2.  That helped the most.

If you don't have the luxury of workshops photos are the next best thing.  If you can find a photo with a similar pose to what an old master drew even better.  Draw the image.  Then do the master copy.  Then draw the image again.  The master copy will give you solutions to the pose.  Already you have learned one solution of many. Hope this helps :)


If possible maybe ypu can ask friends to pose.  drawing from a live model is best because if you don't know what's going on the pose you have the option of walk in around and seeing the pose from another angle

Hi. I have a question if you don't mind me asking.
When you mention designing the faces, does that mean the designs must maintain the model's likeness as well?

Yes.  But that's a design choice as well.  Sometimes
I may want to sacrifice likeness for something else.
Maybe I'm just using the model as reference to paint my character.

Please, where do you get all that information about how the skeleton works? Just anatomy books? Because the anathomy books that i have checked shows the skeleton, but in stiff poses, and is not very good to understand how it works on dynamic poses.

Skeletal details I learned from looking at the skeleton.
I've also made an anatomy sculpture twice.  The more you study
and the more models you're exposed to you learn a little more.

Anatomy and skeletal structure is something that you will continually
improve upon.
