HOW TO: Male Torso Anatomy - BACK by Valentina-Remenar HOW TO: Male Torso Anatomy - BACK by Valentina-Remenar
LOL I'm finally posting this thing. This was actually done 2 years ago and I've never found time to submit it *dies*. Two years ago I posted an anatomy tutorial for the front of the torso (you can check it below), so here you have a back version also. LOL and Ash is on it like usually XD I used Photoshop CC while I drew this...but if you have older PS versions like CS5, CS6 this should work fine too. In other programs some settings may be different. And special thanks to KafkaVey  who edited text in this tutorial :3 Well...I hope you'll learn something new and that this will be useful. Enjoy :la: Other tutorials by me you can check below:

NOTE: Again...this is the tutorial on how I paint anatomy, in my style...I draw semi-realism/anime so the anatomy isn't 100% realistic. This ISN'T reference sheet for different body types (lol, like that's not obvious). I'll make this one later. Though inner body anatomy I draw the same for all body types.

'ssup

I just wanted to say that your anatomy references are absolutely among the best. 

They are so freaking good that I even prefer to use those rathen than photographies even for 3D sculpting.

Keep it up with the good work!

I had this open in school, (I was sitting in the front) and the teacher was standing at the wall. Suddenly, she asked loud:
"Mia, is that a naked man?"

I've never closed a tap this fast before...

But, thanks a lot!!!

Valentina: This is a fantastic tutorial that I'm going to look up again when I draw a back. I haven't drawn backs often so this is very helpful since you take the anatomy and simplify it in an easy-to-remember format.

Other commenters: I see a couple of you talking about "Can you do a female tutorial?" or similar things talking about male vs. female anatomy.

This isn't a good male back muscle tutorial. It's a great back muscle tutorial. Women have the same exact muscles as men, they're just proportioned differently. So look at this diagram, then find a real-life woman with a phsyique similar to what you're going for. Preferably someone that has a lot of pictures of themselves from multiple angles floating around.

Use that woman as a reference, use this diagram to see major muscle groups and where they go, and combine them. That's all you need to do. Women do not have different muscles than men.

Women have the same muscles as men. They're just proportioned a little differently. Just look up some female bodybuilders and fitness models, keep this diagram open in another window, and you'll be fine. If you want names, I like to look at Sophie Arvebrink, Vivi Winkler, Jessica Sestrem. For legs, it's hard to find a better reference than Bakhar Navieba. 
 
Those are all women with a lot of muscle definition. You can see how they're arranged and alter the proportions and softness for your own purposes. And keep in mind that bodybuilders intentionally sculpt their bodies with an appearance in mind. That's why they look different than, say, a fighter like Ronda Rousey or Gina Carano.

All you need to do is find a real-life reference with a build similar to what you want and keep one eye on this diagram and another eye on someone with much more exaggerated muscles so you can get a better idea of how to make it look. ...So I guess you need to grow another eye. Shouldn't be too hard.

Hope that's sorta useful.

Backs are really difficult to draw for me and seeing this separation into different muscle parts, also in various poses, is so helpful!
