Muscle Tutorial - The Torso

By DerSketchie
1K Favourites
Hey everyone! I thought it was finally time for me to upload another tutorial. This is the first of at least three tutorials about muscles. Now, these aren't going to be quite like my other ones in the way that these aren't showing you how a certain body part looks at a certain angle, but moreso about what's underneath. One of the most helpful ways to understand the body is to understand the muscles that move it. If you get in touch with those, body movements themselves will be easier to understand.

I must make note that the original pictures used in this tutorial were not my own this time, but ones I've appropriated from google searches to highlight the lesson. Below are the links to credit each picture.

I can really appreciate these types of tutorials because there are so many artists that don't seem to understand these basic principles. They are so helpful when it comes to proportion, movement, and dimension of a piece of artwork. Keep up the good work!
