what gender are you/what gender do you identify as?
I like to be seen as androgynous! and I dont mind if you use different ones but the pronouns I prefer are they/them.
you mentioned studying anatomy... how do YOU study? do you look up references and practice
Yeah! I mean animal-wise its pretty easy to find photos that show anatomy. Sketch to “planet earth” or nature shows too those are usually good for that kind of thing!
Besides actively searching through pictures I sometimes go on gore blogs and learn more about (generally) human anatomy that way. I dont have a weak stomach though so Im not phased by blood n guts. that method is not for everyone.
I think its really important to just get a good understanding of how muscles and tissue works, how it tightens and flattens and where it lays. How it connects to bone, how it fits with other muscles.
Also SKELETONS MAN look at skeletons thats super helpful.
Learning about how things work is all about structure. You wouldnt build a house without a foundation! Its the same with drawing a living thing
Here’s some links (i tag this kind of thing as #reference)
