It's not 100%; it's copied from a bad photocopy of an anatomy book.

Really impressive structure, clear than other academic books! But I wonder if I want to practice what should I do. Copy the structure and remember them or just draw my things and make it as a reference. Can you give me some tips? I will be really appreciate it OvO

They're copied from some photocopies, so they're not that accurate. Still, I'm glad they're useful. I haven't memorized all the muscles myself, but then I have a cartoony style; in professional industries it's a qualification to know the underlying anatomy of whatever animal you're drawing. But for cartoons I find knowing where to put a suggestion of muscle structure is a good starting point.

Did that ... even make sense?

Thanks a lot!!! For me, most part of my works are superhero topic. So I realized that the muscle is very important for my drawing, because they are HERO. This pic of your I have try to copy and remember for several days, it really helps my painting progress. But still feel that when it comes to a pose designed by myself, little bit confuse of the structure 0.0


:) (Smile) Sooooo, I think I should practise more~. Thanks again!OvO

I'm pretty sure these are from Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer. I just got the book today and your drawings match up the book perfectly. o:

Sounds like they could be! We only received a bunch of photocopies, from various sources, so I couldn't track it exactly.

I'd be really interested to know the book these came from.  I'm trying to learn anatomy on my own and am having a totally hard time with arms and where all the muscles go when the arms are moved.  Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!! :)

Unfortunately these were copied from photocopied pictures from what I can only assume was a medical book of some sort, judging from the amount of detail in it.

Some of the pictures remind me of the illustrations in "The New Muscle Guide" by Frédéric Delavier, which serves mainly muscle training purposes, but also gives good insight into muscle anatomy in every thinkable position and great detail (similar to above examples).
Another very good way of learning anatomy is at [link], there you can freely rotate and zoom a detailed 3D version of the human and - best of all - add and subtract any bodypart imaginable, even with descriptions of any part in great detail. Highly recommendable and free ;)

Awesome and well-detailed guide of the human arm muscles. The coloring will definitely make it easier to understand how the muscles overlap one another. I hope that I can use this as a reference for my future practice sessions. Keep up the good work!

The mistakes really aren't that noticeable to me. In fact, it's perfect. Plus, it will easily compliment the other references I have collected. I really do hope you'll continue to post helpful work like this one.

Very nice job, but on the top right illustration, the way you labeled Biceps Brachii and the Lateral Head of the Triceps is a bit confusing.

*headdesk* I meant the top left. But the text Triceps Brachii has lines going to not only the Triceps but also the Biceps. But don't even worry about, considering I can't even point it out right, I'm sure it doesn't matter.

Cool and very easy to read! One minor nitpick: from a medical point of view the motions 'supination' and 'pronation' are purely lower arm movements. The palm is able to flip 180 degrees without any movement in the elbow point (you can try it yourself). In your drawings the correct description would be supination/pronation with endo- or exorotation of the shoulder. But perhaps in artworld anatomy terminology the terms are used differently? Anyway: Great work :)

Thanks for the tidbit of info. I honestly wouldn't know, and I'm sure there are some mistakes here, these were re-drawn from (bad!) photocopies we were given as a homework assignment, so I was just copying what was on the sheet.
