Inside & Outside: Anatomical Forces in Figure Drawing



To know how to draw the figure on the outside we must also know how to draw the figure on the inside. As artists we need not delve into the complete complexity of the human figure as would a student of medicine (unless you feel so inclined) but we should know how to draw an accurate skeleton in various poses from memory and add to that the major muscle masses. The following is a loose selection of images related to this knowledge.
