Hampton p.30-36: Torso Landmarks + Volume



Notes and studies from Hampton's figure drawing book.

Must remember that clavicles bisect the thoracic cage coronally, and do not reach all the way posteriorly. In fact, the scapulae come anteriorly to meet them.

The watercolour brush is great fun for quick shading.

weirdly, I was JUST thinking about this--found this looking for height differences in females--and although these shapes are good, they don't accurately represent the main column or trunk of the body. These don't take into account the curvature of the spine and the vertebrae and how flexible the trunk is. It doesn't just bend at the waist.
