Anatomy as design

Last session of the Teen Program provided an opportunity to draw along with the students. The center image was a sketch I created for demonstration purposes, the goal of which is explaining anatomy in a design oriented approach. The ones at each end came later. Click on the picture for a better view.

Internal sketch lines based primarily upon the angle of line in specific muscle groups help not only with the illusion of mass, but with the flow of vision and in explaining form.

As the students of our Teen Program progress, there is less need to be consistently directing them and subsequently more time for instructors to involve demonstrations. The best scenario is when everyone is creating.
