Superhero Anatomy

I dug out several magnificent books I have on anatomy, especially for more dynamic representation, like in comics, etc. I have Hogarth, plus the one that is called Muscles in Motion by Glenn Fabry. In adition, I have just installed a software app called Poser Figure Artist, that I'm yet to figure out. The purpose of it is adjusting various 3D models in a position you want them to be, and from an angle you want to see them, and then drawing off of them as you would from any reference. I also want to check out those classical superhero comics. I was never fond of them in particular, but to know muscles, anatomy and movement that you often find in these, could be beneficial.

Home is where your art is

Last couple of days I set out to do more life painting in the Pine Tree Bay, but due to bad weather, I stayed indoors and sketched from imagination and photo reference.

Pine Tree Bay Cronicles

Here is a happy little selection of summer sketches and watercolors. As per watercolors, boy was it rewarding to sit or stand there amidst all this splendor and to try to capture some of that beauty.
