Life Drawing anatomy study

Torso Anatomy Study by Joel Schilling in my life drawing online class

Here is a surprise assignment from a student in my online class.
Both online classes are really hopping and turning in good work.
This student, Joel Schilling, adds mad skill and a sense of humor to this week's anatomical study.

Student description of his process for this drawing:
I wanted to get a little creative with this one so I did a half and half presentation. I used HB, 2B, 4B, and 6B drawing pencils along with all my erasers. This was drawn on 14x17 drawing paper. I really like the way this turned out. The only thing I really had trouble with was figuring out how to draw both the surface and deep stomach muscles. I wound up dividing the stomach in half and drawing each half one way. This assignment was fun, but it was a challenge as I used the separate studies in the Peck text for the bones. One was the ribcage, another the spine, yet another for the scapula and finally one for the clavicle. I then had to figure out how they all went together. It was really the only way to get a good amount of detail and I'm glad I took the time to do it this way.
