3 Large groupings
This is probably the most valuable and important step. We know that there are complicated muscle systems in place, but we really just want to find the major shape so we can begin to see the whole shape of the animal. Using an HB pencil, I lay in those large groups over my skeleton.
When I draw muscle groups, I’m only thinking about large shapes
that house lots of different, smaller muscle shapes. This keeps things simple and helps you see the entire shape of the animal.
