Body Parts and the Whole Anatomy You

Anatomy, after all, is under there. Why not have at least a passing acquaintance? Here's the quickest anatomy lesson ever written:

The skeletal structure of a figure determines the proportion.

Muscle groups and their relative development are the shapes of the body and limbs, but the bones are still underneath.

Fat deposits (relax—we all have them) alter the shapes according to how much of it is where.

Age is another factor in how the body looks. The skeleton loses some of its flexibility with age, muscles change, how and where fat is retained is different, and the quality of the skin changes. Yuccck!

It's all a little clinical, but there it is. You'll find that your drawings will be much better for the time you spend understanding the skeleton and muscle arrangement.
