-Anatomy Tutorial- by odduckoasis -Anatomy Tutorial- by odduckoasis
SIDE NOTE: Please note that this tutorial is a few years old and my own art has improved a lot since then. I will eventually update this, or upload a new one completely. In the mean while, I do hope it helps!

*edit* due to dA issues with showing the damn tut, i had to reupload it, no preview image. Sorry for inconvenience with that stupid downloading.

The long awaited anatomy tutorial is finished! I hope it helps people, I hope it's satisfactory... It took me forever to do it... oO; This is obviously not for anyone that knows a lot about anatomy already- it's a tutorial to help people that don't know much or need help improving. Please ignore any spelling mistakes... I'm sure they're there even though I did look it over a few times. I do indeed hope this helps people. It's hard to cram something as complex as human anatomy into a little tutorial like this, but at any rate, I still hope some people will find it useful, even if it's not exactly perfect....

Sorry if there's anything I failed to mention- like I said, there is just so much information, it's hard to fit it all in.

Thanks! Enjoy.

Edit: Sorry for the long loading time... >>;;;

EDIT: DISCLAIMER!!! I do not claim to know everything there is to know about anatomy nor do I claim to have a perfect knowledge. I KNOW this tutorial is flawed and is not a perfect shining example of EXACT proportionate anatomy. Please understand this tutorial is not designed to cause you to draw LIKE me- but give you a basic understanding of skeletal structure, muscle structure and how it all fits together. Find your own style and work off more than one source. I do not claim this is the only way you can learn anatomy. You should study from multiple sources, but this can be a good foundation to get you started in an UNDERSTANDING. Again, I do not claim to know all, so do not think that I am. Thank you.

comments and faves appreciated.

Great tutorial!  These things help a ton!   (But I still need a LOT more praftice :p)  Message me when you do the updated one too!   I would love to see it!  (Oh and could you do a tutorial with drawing heads?  Like looking up down or askews?  Your perspectives (on humans and athros) look perfect and it would help me a ton!)
Thanks again!
