I would highly encourage you to NOT use my drawings for reference, they are just to show the concept.
If you can, get a hold of a proper anatomy book (I like Anatomy for the Artist myself), look in a mirror, or just find some stock reference.
I don't claim to be a medical illustrator. XD
Next will be hips I think..
[NOTE] I drew 6-7 ribs.. there should actually be .. ah 8-9 I think. I just meant 'ribs go here'. XD .. but yeah, the rib cage should end closer to halfway between the belly button and the bottom of the chest. NOT ALL UP IN THE CHEST AREA WHERE I DREW IT. .. I'll fix that eventually when I get time orz Speaking of both, the lead singer of Skuter is wonderful reference for ribs and the collar bone [link]
Thanks, this was really helpful! I especially liked how you pointed out common mistakes. I actually started fixing that problem after realizing that it looked wrong, but looking back at some of my first submissions, I was definitely guilty of the second one! Now, I'll remember to make sure I've got it right
Thanks! I know have trouble with that! Yes, Do the hips next! Ooh, and don't forget to talk about the differences between guys and girls! And maybe afterwards, you could talk about how to draw breasts next (the "giant chest wrecking balls" thing is really annoying...)
