-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.

Not to be pushy, but may I request one of facial structure?

It's not pushy. I don't think I've gotten a suggestion for that. I'll look into it when I've got some time. =)

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!

I'm not doctor, but I'm pretty sure that women aren't that skinny.

:iconodduckoasis:
odduckoasis Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
Bodies vary from person to person. Not everyone fits into a perfect mold, but I have seen some crazy thin women before that sometimes makes me go 'how are they that thin?'

Granted, this is /several/ years old, and as I already stated, I'm no expert, but yeah. Thx.

Don't apologize for lack of perfect proportion. Having taught anatomy a a medical school, I have a tip for you: apparently even God doesn't get proportion perfect every time! Keep up the good work and thanks!

Thank you so much for that. It's very true in that fact, since not everyone is so perfectly proportioned, if that were the fact, everyone would be a SIM haha!
And you're welcome!
