Know your anatomy ba­sics

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

A lot of comic art is all about ex­ag­ger­a­tion – none more so than with the hu­man body. But to ex­ag­ger­ate a fig­ure cor­rectly, you need to have a good grasp on real-life hu­man anatomy. Take life-draw­ing classes, study text­books such as those of An­drew Loomis, sketch your friends in dif­fer­ent poses… do what­ever it takes to in­crease your un­der­stand­ing of how the hu­man body func­tions. You’ll then have the con­fi­dence to draw and paint mus­cle­bound su­per­heroes, or gan­gly su­pervil­lains.
