Upper Body Muscle Tutorial by DerSketchie
Upper Body Muscle Tutorial
Another muscle tutorial for you guys. Next I'll be tackling the muscles of the lower body, then I have plans to finish up with the muscles you can visibly see working beneath the skin. I'll say again that this tutorial is meant to educate about what happens below the surface of our skin, so the original images are just ones I've appropriated from google (didn't feel like winging it -or- cutting my own arm open to have a look see). Here is a source list:

Muscle Tutorial - The Torso by DerSketchie
Muscle Tutorial - The Torso
Hey everyone! I thought it was finally time for me to upload another tutorial. This is the first of at least three tutorials about muscles. Now, these aren't going to be quite like my other ones in the way that these aren't showing you how a certain body part looks at a certain angle, but moreso about what's underneath. One of the most helpful ways to understand the body is to understand the muscles that move it. If you get in touch with those, body movements themselves will be easier to understand.

I must make note that the original pictures used in this tutorial were not my own this time, but ones I've appropriated from google searches to highlight the lesson. Below are the links to credit each picture.

I've been getting a lot of comments about my tutorials, but sometimes I get stuck thinking of things people may want to learn, so I encourage suggestions for future ones. Also, anybody is free to use said tutorials however they want, the only stipulation being that you can't repost actual tutorial claiming it as your own. That'd just be weird.

Don't be weird.

Now that that's out of the way, I've been studying anatomy for the past year or so trying to gear up for what is hoped to be a pretty big project. Muscles are more fun than I thought :) Got into zombies not too long ago and it seems to have really stuck, not just for drawing, but also books, cinematics, comics (I know, just a type of book, but it feels like it still warrants it's own category), and documentaries.

Hope you guys enjoy my stuff!
