It’s all about the learnin’!

If you’ve been around this blog for a while, you probably know I teach classes at the Toronto Cartoonist Workshop when I’m not drawing stuff for comics (and writing stuff for comics).  Today’s an anatomy class, and I prepared a couple of handouts, showing the development of the arm and shoulders from a simple skeletal form to a finished one.  They’re fun little examples and I thought I’d show off a couple of today’s handouts, just so you guys can see what you’re missing by not coming ’round to the Workshop and hanging out.

More of today’s handouts:

All right, that’s enough knowledge bombs for today.  You’ve got the working understanding of the arms now, go draw an issue of the Hulk, already!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your bonus comic book anatomy moment:

The drawing of Cap on the left is by Rob Liefeld...the drawing on the right was drawn anonymously, but it shows off the level of anatomical drawing skill that Rob is known for.
