Steve Hampton: Figure Drawing: Design and Invention

Figure Drawing 

I took one of his classes back when I went to art school and he’s an incredible professor and instructor. I’d advise people to look through his studies and even buy his book. It’s not necisarilly how to draw correct anatomy but to know it while making it stylized. His class basically teaches the mechanics of the body while using imagination. 

Seriously, I recommend anyone to attending one of his online workshops. It’s kind of pricey but much more affordable than what I paid. Then again I had my own benefits.

Helpful Link Part 3

Sycra’s Channel on YouTube

Some helpful videos that have short but information heavy commentary. I’ve only checked out the anatomy videos, and though they weren’t made to teach anatomy from the ground up and aren’t recommended for beginners, they point out some helpful facts.

What’s most helpful probably is that the artist builds up the musculature right in front of your eyes and digs out the anatomy.

Again, I don’t rec. some of these for beginners, but this can be helpful for people studying anatomy out of books and diagrams who want a demonstration.

More Helpful Links

I’m a little bit hesitant about posting this because when I made this tumblr I didn’t want to post the usual repost of a million reposts, but I’ve been using these links for so long and they’ve been so helpful. I hope you guys don’t mind me posting these.

(last warning these are really old, already well-known links I’m sorry followers /weep)

For improving gesture and figure drawings!

http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php
-shuffles through many stock images of humans and animals with a handy timer. Also has a nifty class-training mode.

-same concept, some overlap of images and some different from the link above.

http://www.posemaniacs.com/

-Kinda helpful but most artists don’t recommend this for detailed studying. Quoting the Resources for D/ic/ks site, “Keep in mind though that this uses 3d models and does not realistically show the movement of muscles.” Some of the options available on the site are fun to experiment with, though!

-lotsa lotsa resources for human anatomy

Definitely stylized but still not terrible anatomy.

Submitted by the lovely pendraeg again!
Keep in mind this is pretty stylized. Read selectively/with discretion etc etc. :>
