Anatomy Part 1

I was able to bring a big, fat copy of Grey's Anatomy home from the library the other day. With the help of this book I'm taking the first steps in a sort of self-study course in artistic anatomy. So far it has been really fun to actually start learning the scientific/medical names of things like the different plates in the skull, or the bones of the wrist. And of course for me it is a little easier to learn through drawing.

Here are some of my recent sketchbook pages (photographs and not scans, unfortunately):

This afternoon I will be heading up to Henry Wingate's studio to continue in another vein -drawing from life. Today's focus will be the arm.
