In an attempt to memorize anatomy, I'm attempting to put a musculature system on this simplified skeleton. Hopefully this keeps me motivated to finish.

Tips or suggestions are welcome.

Gah, I'm running into problems. I may have to start over with a real skeleton.

Thanks, Achilles.

What I'm doing now is taking photos and attempting to determine their underlying anatomy.

This is what I got for Obama so far. I started in Illustrator, but I'm using Artrage for details.

Update to my bizarre project.

You're doing the opposite work than Leonardo did ...:D Terrific commitment!

You guys are years ahead of me. WOW. Nice work guys.

Nah, I'm not years ahead of anyone. I only started studying anatomy like this a couple days ago, and according to Loomis, the anatomy of the head can be mastered in three nights of study.

I highly recommend reading Andrew Loomis' books (starting with the Head/Hands book), because he doesn't just tell you how to do it, he provides encouragement (which I think is more valuable than his lessons)

Also, I recommend downloading DAZ3D (while it's still free) from here: http://www.daz3d.com/

They provide free models with accurate muscle structure. Great for referencing.

Really great idea. Thanks for the link to the software too. I'm going to try it.
