Know the Skeleton
// Gurney Journey
|Edward Poynter (1836-1919) of the Royal Academy|
I hasten to add that my own knowledge of the skeleton is pretty basic compared to some of my colleagues who have really made a study of it.
When I need answers, here are some of the places I turn:
Books: Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist
Figure Drawing for All It's Worth
33" high model skeleton
I use a Revell plastic model that's only a foot tall, which dangles from my studio wall. A model skeleton should be rigged so that you can hold it in any pose to echo what the model is doing. Every art school should have a model skeleton in the figure drawing room.
