A wicked fuck-ton of anorexia references.
When drawing someone who's anorexic, people often tell you just to pull the skin over the bones, but that's not accurate. Granted, the skin'll be pulled tight and the bones'll project to an alarming extent, but there is still muscle underneath there (which'll, in fact, be even more noticeable now that the skin is tighter). It won't be giant, bulging muscle because of the malnutrition, but you ought to study the basic muscular anatomy of someone who doesn't work out. You need some muscle to move and keep your organs in place, so it will be seen through the skin. It'll be very vague, but still there. What you mainly see is the tendons and bone projection. Just don't forget about the muscle.
