anatomy study – 01 (skull)

i decided to push the study from yesterday further, since i had an idea :-).

so, i corrected all mistakes i found in the speedy sculpt of the skull, and then made a manual retopo, such that jaw and rest are two meshes. this way i have now a skull, as anatomically correct as i could do, with a movable jaw… of course, just for fun, this would be ridiculous to do, but i do have a nice surprise, which i will reveal at the end of this project πŸ™‚

so, here is the retopo meshes (ah, blender viewport skips some edges of the wire, believe me, they are there!), and the sculpted multires version of the skull:

  1. Hey! I’m thinking about getting a book about the human anatomy, both for drawing and modeling purposes. I wonder if you could recommend any? Because it seems like you know a lot about anatomy. How have you learned/ how do you learn anatomy? I’m a complete beginner in anatomy, never really studied any, soon 16 years old. Like what do you think about “Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Stephen Rogers Peck” and “Drawing Human Anatomy by Giovanni Civardi”? I have heard those are good, but also that a whole bunch of other books are good so I’m not sure which to get. πŸ™‚

    (btw, that skull is perfect in my eyes! πŸ˜‰ )

    • hi gustaf, glad you find my study interesting… hmm, i cannot say about the books you mention, i don’t know them. i do learn mainly from philippe faraut books, and general information on anatomy from dedicated webpages. … i would think, best is you look into a couple of books, and then decide which one feels best to you for learning. everyone has a different way to learn, so even if you pick the most recommended book, it might be wrong for you. so, just look into the books, read a little here and there, and then buy the one (or the ones) that you feel give you most… and, don’t forget to check back at the end of my project, it might be well interesting for you πŸ˜‰ …
