My name is Roberto Osti, welcome to my “Complete Anatomy” videos. In these first three videos I discuss the structural, volumetric and anatomical characteristics of the maletorso. These videos are designed so that you can draw along with me and learn as you go. As I draw, you can copy what i do, you can stop the video in case you need to and take your time, restartthe video and resume drawing. This way, you will have ample time to practice drawing and understandthe anatomical characteristics of the human body. Video #1In the first video I discuss the skeletal and structural characteristics of the human torso: volumes, proportions and landmarks on the front and three-quarter view of ribcage and pelvis. The three quarter point of view visualizes very efficiently the three-dimensional aspect of the volumes ofthe body. Video #2The second video is dedicated to the skeletal and muscular connection. Here I will discuss the origin andinsertion of the superficial muscles and analyze their volumetric characteristics and interconnections. The emphasis on the volumes in this video helps to understand the effect of the light on the bodys formsand to obtain a more three dimensional effect in your artworks. As for the previous video, a view rendering of the torso will provide more information on the volumes ofthe figure. Video #3In the third video, the superficial muscles of the torso are rendered in more detail and more organically, an essential step toward a realistic and convincing depiction of the human form. The muscular-skeletalconnections are also considered in both the front and views of this demonstration to draw a holisticcontinuity with the two previous videos. Enjoy!
