I like to try and work a bit of actual anatomy into these but tend to get half way and then just start stuffing them full of cogs and pulleys - like a child shoving all of their laundry into a wardrobe and then slamming the door before anything can fall out :) 
Real bodies are so amazingly complex with the way the ligaments, bones and muscles all work together to allow movement.
