So this is what I produced today at the livestream session I had. What I did was to write down the very hard-to-read-notes on Michael Mentler’s sketches from his anatomy thread: "Book of Bones" on conceptart.org. About 95% of the information here comes from mentler’s knowledge, this is really just how I study stuff personally, so ALL CRED goes to this awesome dude. People wanted to see this stuff afterwards, so I made a post with the finished content.
Make sure to check out Mentler’s thread, you’ll find tons and tons of more stuff there + his drawings are hngngngng<3
anyway, let’s get started:
And here is PART 2:
Please Note: The “homework” part is something I made up myself. And by “extra weight”, I do not mean *only* pregnant women, but also stuff like carrying a heavy bag with one arm, or wearing a very heavy backpack (this would work best drawn in profile view in order to show how the mass distribution keeps the body balanced).
Also note the colors used in the last examples.
The two first have are balanced, we can see this because the cyan and red colors are more or less evenly distributed (using the line of gravity as a “border”). But on the last one to the right, there’s more red. Which also proves that the body is unbalanced, and that the person will trip and fall any moment.
