  • Putting it all together. Learning specific parts of the body on motion, to better understand some more difficult muscles.
English Right, so because these biceps would be for at least from the three-quarters view and this view here, the front view, these biceps would be pretty large and so what I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna reduce their size a little bit. Cuz the person here'd be a very big person. So let's go ahead and just make it a little bit thinner. Trying to make sure it goes into the same spots though. This is going to be the hard part, trying to reduce the size and keep it to where I had it, you know, where I had it connected. Let's go around there and there, connect there. Right, so that should work. Actually really it's just think part here I need to reduce so just gonna grab that make it a little bit thinner. Let's see here. So that's all I'm doing right now. I'm just reducing the size, just so you know. So I'm going to pause when I do that. Alright so the biceps are reduced and so we're gonna work on the other muscles here for a second and the pectorals. It's the pectoralis minor, which really isn't that important to learn. In fact I would, I would argue that it's not important at all to learn for art but nonetheless we'll learn where they go, where they go either a very minor under your muscle. They're never visible, and I don't think they make any difference even to the pec itself, like how the pec will look if you build these up. But nonetheless, we'll go ahead and put them on there. So they start from the third, fourth, and fifth rib, and they actually attach to the rib and not to the coastal, cartilage here. So they actually attach to the rib start from the third one, and there are thin muscles they attach here to the scapula. Now go ahead and I'll turn this, layer up again. All right, so they're just like this. And then we have another one here. Now we are all gonna learn this from the front view because they are not like as they are not an important. Right, like so, the same thing for this side, so again this starts at the third rib, oops, and the fourth rib, and the fifth rib and they got to look thicker, we'll go ahead and add some dark lines here. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like so, couple of light lines. Maybe just like one and then some tendons, where they attach. [BLANK_AUDIO] And that's it, there's really not much to learn here. They're not important, like I said. Right, then we're gonna to the, actually let me go and turn this layer down again. Lock it so I actually paint on it, and we'll go back to the outer muscles and now we'll draw the the pecs. So we know the you know overall shape of the pec is gonna be something like, it's gonna come down here so we shape something like this right that's the overall shape of the back but we're gonna learn the muscles that make up the shape. Just like we learned the muscle. Of other things and as we, you know, begin to add on the deltoid and everything we're gonna start and see is how you get the shape of the arm. I'm gonna add the tricep and so froth. So when you learn the muscles and how to put them on, then you'll automatically know the contours of the human body. All right, so the pectoris major. Connects in a few places, so it connects on the ridge here of the collarbone. Also called the clavicle, it'll connect all the way down here along Sternum and then finally it'll connect to the it depends on the person. It can either be the sixth or seventh rib. It'll just kinda come down here to the sixth or seventh rib. Then it's gonna connect in three spaces here. There's like, almost like you can think of the, think about it as three different muscles, right? And that's how we're gonna draw it. It's gonna connect right here. So it's gonna go over the bicep. Alright, so first we'll draw the edge where it connects here. So it kind of skips a little edge right there and connects all along the edge here. And actually you wanna go a little bit farther in, about like so. Goes along the clavical, the collar bone, like this and then it's gonna have the first muscle, we'll think about it as two different muscles. It's gonna be on the very top, so it comes over here and it connects to the side of the humerus bone. Goes over the bicep, connects to the side of the humerus bone. It actually connects to the inside groove, but it does go over the biceps, but actually, can actually, like, it's kind of on the inside of this little groove here, I think. But we'll just attach it like this. You know, kinda, this kinda comes up to about this corner here, this is the shape of the first muscle. This is the one on the top of the other ones where it connects over here. It connects on top of the other muscles and we'll go ahead and, actually I'll just use this one for right here. Show the ligament structure there and then, this'll be like a ligament structure around, not ligament excuse me, tendon type of structure and we'll just make the very edge of this like that. It's going to come down, like I said, either to the sixth or seventh rib. So you have one, two, three, four, five, six, so six is the one that begins here and then seven and so I'm not gonna, it's not connected to the rib, but to the coastal margin. It'll either be right about here and then come up or it's going to be down here and then start to curve up like this, and depending on the person you can actually get an interesting kind of look here where it comes down. Like this you know where you have the muscle looks like that, it depends how developed their muscle is. We'll come down to the 7th and that's were it connects so I'm just going to show the connection spot there. Use a smaller brush and just show a little bit the, how the then tendon muscles connecting here. So go ahead and draw a few. Light lines separating and finally a few dark lines separating. [BLANK_AUDIO] That thick line wasn't supposed to be there. All right, so now we have that first part of the muscle. Now, temporarily I'm gonna go ahead. Just know that this next muscle the middle muscle. The middle muscle is gonna go nah we'll do the next one which, which is on top well let's start with the ones that are most on top. So the bottom muscle this next muscle that s suppose on top it's under this muscle right where it connects to the bone but it's on top of the middle one we're just gonna kinda draw the basic shape of a pec here. So go like this and it connects right up, right up here you'll see part of it. So it kinda connects to this upper part. This connects to the lower part of the arm, this connects to the upper part and that part connects to the middle and it's gonna come down. Let's kinda shape it like this. [BLANK_AUDIO] There we go. Going to pick this gray color. Just kinda. Okay, so why is it not picking gray. Just add a few lines like that. This is all cartilage up here as well. Make that darker color to show the separation between these two. I'll just use black. I wanna show there's a clear separation between that where it connects there and there. Now we're just gonna show, that'll be the muscle like so. So the darkness right there was kind of overlapping and finally we have the middle muscle and it's attached under all of these two muscles It attaches in the middle underneath these two. What is important, though, is that just that you know the general area where the, where the muscle attaches, which is just on that part of the humerus bone. This is important to remember when someone's lifting their arm, and also helps understand how the armpit is formed with the pectoral muscle. We're going to add some lines now. Personally, I wanna show the separation here. They are thicker. This also helps understand when you draw the pec muscle why you draw certain lines within the pec muscle. All right, now I'm gonna show the part that, if you were to. You draw the muscle as it's developed and the part you are going to see more is here look at this so this is the part of the muscle you see more when you're drawing it and then the figure will come out here and so forth. The abs and what not. I just want to show the last little part where it connects and when you build a muscle it's going to kind of have this shape to it. So it's not gonna, it's not gonna have really bad shape to it, so, it's gonna be more right around here and this under part here, if you do it's gonna be tucked under and shaded cuz it's thinner, and the other parts stick out more. So, just keep that in mind, it'll help when you're, when you're drawing your figures. Understand, but it's really important to understand how this pec works and that the, that it goes over the bicep and the deltoid goes over both of them. Right, so then for your exercise, go ahead and, and you know I never, I didn't, even have you do exercise for the pectoral the minor because I wanted the pectoralis minor because I, it's not important I don't, it's really not so, I just, just put it there just because. Right just for you to know that it's there just to be thorough. Okay let's go ahead and draw on this side now and we'll have the same thing. But first of your exercises, which is to draw this about 3 to 5 times. It's a pretty easy muscle to memorize and it's not very complicated so it shouldn't take you very long to memorize this going back and forth drawing it from memory, drawing it from reference, memory, reference. And then don't look at it, cover up your paper or cover up this side when you draw it over here. That way you're learning to draw the, the pectoral muscle from both sides. Again, it shouldn't be too hard to do because it's a pretty simple muscle. [BLANK_AUDIO] And actually before I follow this side, I, I just wanna show a few more these little ridges coming in. Just to show you know that there is a kind of like tendon structure there. Right so just like before we'll draw actually this time. Let's draw the middle one first, no we'll draw the top one first again. So remember how far it comes down, about half way down the clavicle comes and connects to the humerus bone and then it kind of comes here and connects all along the edge like so. I'm going to draw the, first I'll go ahead and color this in. [BLANK_AUDIO] If you're following along and drawing with pencil you know you do the same thing, but you just draw with the pencil. So you would, you know sketch this in, the outer shape of it. Then you would draw the little, tendon lines. Then, if you want to use like an eraser to erase some and draw the lighter lines, and draw some of the darker, thicker lines. Push harder on your pencil, or use a darker pencil if you want to. Right, now we'll draw the bottom. [BLANK_AUDIO] And we're drawing it as if it's not very, the person is not very built and I should have, actually, connected that a little bit lower, or even just made it thinner. And then this way you can see where this one's connecting. [BLANK_AUDIO] Remember not everyone's, goes down to the seventh coastal cartilage there, sometimes it only goes down to the sixth, so just keep that in mind. [BLANK_AUDIO] Just gonna show a few of these little, breaks here in the cartilage. Just go and add some highlights to the middle. Add some darker lines, I want to make the whole edge here dark as well. Make this dark right here and also knowing that there's these three muscles can help you kind of figure out and sometimes you can have this, you know darker line here in the middle and, you know that muscle there. Just knowing the, the direction of these lines, though, the fibers will help you when you're drawing a very defined muscle, a very defined chest which we will go through later on. You're gonna see how that will help you do that. To get that proper definition where you want it. You've done the muscle, you know the way the fibers go, and so you're going to be able to draw much more realistic pecs from your imagination, without any effort. It becomes effortless, you reach this stage of, I guess, a bliss. It's just it's really awesome. It's a state of relaxation when you can just draw from your mind and there isn't much thinking involved, you're just doing it and to reach that stage it's really awesome and it's why I'm so inspired to make tutorials that are affordable for people because I want them to be able to experience that for themselves. I remember how I used to not like drawing that much. I mean, I would draw and I remember at first, I used to love drawing, just from reference. You know, it was fun. But after a while, it got old and, it's like, I don't know, I kind of started to lose my love for art until I learned how to draw from my mind and when I'm able to start, you know. When I was able to start drawing from my mind and creating these really awesome images that's when I'm like yeah, now I'm loving art. And, I've been loving it ever since, so. All right, so now we have the pec muscles from the front and also called the pectoralis major. [BLANK_AUDIO] As you can see, the, the pecs actually take, take up quite a bit of space and I wanna show you from a photograph that this is indeed true. Actually I apologize because this is a paid for course, I'd have to go and find a photo that I have for reference or that I have rights to use under in a product that I sell, so because it's not a free product. But nonetheless just go ahead and check out some photos on like Google images and then what you'll see is that you have the naval is right about here. Because the love handles, they attach to the clavicle, come up here. Right, so when you have the, I'm just going to call them love handles for now, and you have your belly button right around this area. You're gonna see you know the ribcage, you're gonna have your abdominal muscles and so forth. What's, what's important is you'll see the chest, you know it comes down, way down here, and, you know they might even draw it where it comes out like this. In terms of the chest, it's more developed. This muscle can actually come down more like this and have a, more of a shape like this. In fact, sometimes, the, the pec can be so developed that it has kind of a shape like this, where it kinda comes down like so and that an be due to developing the muscle underneath here, that attaches and, you know, maybe it, it comes out a little bit. And you get this kinda look here. But anyway, just check, check out some chest muscles and you're gonna see that they come down quite far. Like take the lowest part of the chest muscles and draw a line straight across where they intersect with the arm, you're going to see it comes down quite far. So just know that when you're drawing your figure and you have your stick man and everything and you're kind of drawing your stick man that you know, you know, whatever, you know, form you decide to use for your stick figure whether you want to show the hips and the legs like this, that you have the well you know where your chest is going to be you know like where your sternum. Like how far your sternum because you mastered the skeleton already and so you know how this space between these ratios here. Between the rib cage and between the top of the pelvis and because you know this you know where the belly buttons gonna be. You know, once we get there. We haven't got there yet. Because you know the skeleton and you know, okay, that's about how long the sternum goes down so I know starting from here is where I'm gonna start putting my chest in. And so the measurements is something you wanna, you know, keep in mind, you're like, you have the total width of your, from here down to here, you know, about halfway, you know, a little bit, not, not quite halfway but almost halfway. Between the top up here and here. You have your middle section that's the bottom and that's where the chest begins, where the bottom of the sternum and also, you know, check out Mastering the Human Figure. It has a lot of diff, you know, cool proportions that you'll want to memorize as well that will really help when you're drawing your figure. Okay, so I can go in and erase all this now. It's not needed. Next we'll draw the, pec from the side view. You can probably start to figure it out because you know you have. You know that you have this top part here that connects like this, you know it comes down, connects to the side of the humerus, right, you know about where it connects over here about how far down, cuz you can see how far down it connects here. Doesn't connect too far down. [BLANK_AUDIO] Then you have the, just go ahead and just add a little bit of the tendon here. A little bit of the, actually I like to add that, I'd like to add that last, so. [BLANK_AUDIO] You know, the direction that these flow, the lines flow toward this way. Quite a few highlight lines here in the center. Right, then we'll have the bottom one which you'll notice comes a little bit above here, comes underneath and we know that how many ribs it comes down to. And we know it comes down to the part where well basically the sixth or, or seventh rib and need to know about how far down that is. When you reach the sixth or seventh rib. So you can see if you turn this off, you see the first rib. So one, two, three, four, five, six you know it's going to be coming down to about this area here, right so, know also, it kind of curves in, it kind of has this curved in here, from the side view, so it kind of has a shape like where it kind of curves in like this then comes down and connects to one, two, three, four, five, six, around right along here. Its a little bit to the seventh. So that's the overall shape of it. We know it goes underneath the other one. Kind of comes over here and from the side view you can kind of see, we won't make it too buff, but you can kind of see it has, the whole peck will kinda come out like this because these muscles can build up. Of course if the person doesn't work out much, it's going to be pretty flat and more towards the ribcage, but still going to have some thickness to it. Might not be much, but it will be some. I'm going to go ahead and just add in. The middle space, as well. All right, so we know the, the main shape then from the side view is about like so. And you can see, if you draw a line straight across, you can tell that it's, it's coming to around the same, the same space and you just kinda reshape this a little bit though. It's supposed to be connecting right there, then coming out and up. All right, so that's the basic shape. Let's go ahead and, add some dark lines here. [BLANK_AUDIO] We know these lines kinda come up in, like this and everything starts to come, starts to come toward the center. We have horizontal lines and we'll just kinda go like this. I like to do this particular 2, inin cuz it makes it easier, I think it makes it easier to distinguish the, the muscles from the bones and everything, rather than doing it in, like, black and white or drawing in black and white or pencil or something. I still wanna show this whole, and actually, when a muscle sticks out this far, we can't really see the insertion point so much, where it inserts. We can see where it inserts there, in the collar bone, but you can't really see when we develop the muscle out like this, this large, you can't see over here where it develops, cuz we can't see where it's connecting. It's folding, it's folding out and around so if we looked at it from like the underside of the pec muscle, we take this shape here, we're looking up at the person. So it kinda, kinda connects with the arm and it comes out like this and then it comes up. And so where the muscle, it's coming up like this right, so the muscle is coming over like this, coming over like this and there's this dip then right here and that's where it's connecting so if you're looking. Looking from this angle this is like a cliff dropping off and you can't see beyond it you're only seeing to here. So from the side view you're only seeing to here where the muscles are sticking out and if the muscles have more of a arch like this to it. It's not as flat because some people's pecks are more flat then drop off other's are more like they have the highest point here in the middle. If that's the case then from the side view. That's the part that's sticking out the most, that's the part you're gonna see. You're not gonna see any of this that, that droops down like a mountain or a hill. It's like a hill going like this. And so, when you look from the side, you're just seeing there, all this is out of your view. All right, so all these planes are out of your view. Go head and erase this. Right, so. Keep in mind that's what we're seeing, then, is we're seeing it pop out and we're not seeing it come, turn back around to the side and connect to the sternum. So why you're not going to see the cartilage, or, excuse me, the the tendon on that side. You're not going to see any of this right here. Right, so now for the exercise I want you to go ahead and draw. The side view. Draw the pec, the pec from the side view a, a few times for reference. And then draw a few times from memory. Go back and forth until you feel pretty comfortable drawing it from memory, and it, you know, it's in your, it's in your head and you go, okay, this is the, you know, the basic shape that the pec has from the side view. If you want, you can also draw it over here. Draw the, draw the pec muscle again from the side view and we'll go ahead and just do the basic shape here really quick. So we know the different parts it connects and so you have this, the top part here. Ya know, it's going to connect like this and it comes, this first part comes down and the second part is here, this part comes down over here and has this like criss-cross effect. We know it kinda has more, it kinda turns in more here and it comes to right about here and it probably turns in even more it comes out a little bit like this. Depends how, you know, big the person is. But this is the overall shape. [BLANK_AUDIO] Just go ahead and speed this process up a little bit. [BLANK_AUDIO] And then I'll just color in these parts here. Okay, so if you just do it very quickly. You, you know, it depends on the person, too, like sometimes the person, they might have. Okay, cool, so not drawing on that. No, I am drawing under that layer. They might have more, it might swoop in. Even more like this before it comes down to this part here. Just, like I said, it just depends on the person. Like here we have it more like that, so might as well make it match. It's gonna take a dark color here. Oh, that's the eraser, no wonder it's not dark. Just gonna use the size three brush. [BLANK_AUDIO] And then add this bottom muscle here. [BLANK_AUDIO] So I'm keeping this, you know, quick, and easy. I think I'm gonna just use that color for the cartilage. Yeah, I should probably stick to what color I have been using. So the cartilage there, and there. Not cartilage but tendon, tendon tissue. Okay,all right so lastly we'll draw the pec muscles from the three fourths view, because. Cuz we know the ori, orig, origination of the muscles, and we can see the angle. We can see, okay and this thing we can see. We can actually see the insertion points. Remember, there is a space between the pec muscles and it kinda comes around like this an d then, it comes up. So we know that, you know, the basic shape here. We know that this bottom muscle. When it comes up, it attaches to the upper part here. Comes down, like so and the top one crisscrosses over that on top of it and it comes, like so. You know that it inserts into the humerus. So, you know all the insertions points and you know you already have the skeleton. This is why it's so important to memorize the skeleton because when you have the skeleton memorized you can reduce the skeleton in your mind. [MUSIC] Right, and when we're drawing from the three quarters view. We should also keep in mind, there is still this, I don't wanna mess up that, that muscle there but it kinda curves in more like this. You know, it's kind of a, sort of a side view. I'm just gonna do it this way instead of that other trick I did. Put in the whole mass there. [BLANK_AUDIO] Draw some tendon here. All along here. Same kinda [INAUDIBLE]. Do it like this, this will be faster. Finally, we'll use a dark color here to separate the muscles. And then show the fibers, the directions they go [BLANK_AUDIO] Gonna turn my cintiq sideways. Make this easier to pull these lines. [BLANK_AUDIO] There we go. That's, highlights here to the center. You'll notice again that we're not adding any sort of depth to these muscles yet as far as the form of the muscle goes. We'll get into that later. Right now, obviously from the. These, from this three-quarter view, we're also gonna be able to see the other pec a little bit. We know that it's gonna connect like so. It's gonna come down. And this is where it's kinda more of a, a side view. But we know it's gonna kinda come down like this. We'll be able to see the depth of it. The muscle's not going to be this flat, it's going to have some depth like this. Unless the person's really skinny. We're gonna add a little bit of depth to the muscle. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like so, and so now we're kinda seeing the inside of that mountain, and it rolls over. And let's go and actually use gray really fast and just kinda show a tendon. Fibers here where it connects. And a little bit down here, right here. Right, now we use a dark color. And we still wanna show. Where these muscles originate. We're still gonna have this upper muscle, where it kinda comes down like this. And then we're gonna have this kinda middle section where it kinda comes up like this. And we wanna show the direction of these fibers so that we know the overall direction of this muscle matches. And it, so it does change a little bit. You know, it comes up like this. On this angle, cuz that's going down, around, and connecting to the arm. Just come up. So you still have the same down and up, and then horizontal lines that we had before. Just looks a little different from this view. But because you know the direction of everything, you're able to draw this correctly. Right, so we can see we're filling out the pec muscles now, and the all, that's all the. In viewpoints we need to be concerned with when drawing pec muscles, we're not going to see the pecs from here or here. When we get to the physiology, the outside physiology of the anatomy some females if the breasts are big enough, might be visible way out. Here you might be able to see some of the breast that's laying on the rib cage and some of it hangs outside. You might be able to see a little bit of that so we might, you know, get into that from the back view but as far as. That's that's if, you know, their breasts are very huge. But, for the male, this is all we need to see. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, so I'd like to, you know, try to make the videos, each video as long as possible, but I don't know if I wanna also add the deltoid to the same video, because then the video's gonna be like, pushing over an hour. But, yeah. Can' be pushing up an hour. So I'm going to go ahead and stop it here at almost 40 minutes, and we'll just call that one pecs. So, there you go.The next muscle we work on is the deltoid. Or shoulder muscle. One more quick word, you might be wondering, how is this going to help me exactly when we're drawing this. And you know, I should probably be more. Consistent here with this front muscle and make it more developed like I did others. First, I was making it more flat and skinny thinking that that might have been the better way to approach it. But now I'm thinking, a better way to approach the muscle is as, is as if it's developed. So, to be consistent here, really quick. If you've already memorized this, that's fine. All we're gonna do is just bring it down, all it is, is making the person a little more developed, to be a little more consistent with what we're drawing from the other views, and when we go over with the. This when we go, when we wrap skin over the hu, human body when, after we learn all the muscles. When we wrap the skin over the human body you're gonna see how beneficial it is to know not only the, the were the muscles attach and everything cause that just helps you figure out quickly from your mind how to draw the figure. From any position and you're like ok, I've got all this information in my head and by the way if you haven't done the exercises you probably should do them. I've made my mind to get caught up here. But, I think you already did the exercises for this, let's just assume every time we do a new exercise you draw it three to four times from. reference, draw it from memory draw it from reference until it looks right and you feel comfortable drawing it from memory. What's going to happen though when you have all this information in your mind where muscles attach and you know, okay the arm moves this way and this way. You know the skeletal structure. You know the arm can move up this way, it can move inwards, it can move towards us. It can move away from us. All of these different movements and where this mucles's attached, you know, hey if the arm moves up here, like up this way. You know this muscle has to stretch and still attach to that. Part of the muscle, to that part of the arm, and that part of the bone. And you know the deltoid, it still has to come attach to the side of the bone, and so you know you're going to get this kinda look here with the deltoid, excuse me. You're gonna get this kind of look here where it kinda curves and turns into the pec muscle, like this. It kinda has this kinda s curve. It kinda comes in, and you kinda get that look there from a human figure. And then you can see that one muscle that we learned a long time ago remember that was the [UNKNOWN] [SOUND] And we can see that muscle here and then, and then you're gonna see the bicep come off like this and so forth and then a triceps down here and then these muscles, and it's important to, to know that because when you, in other words you might be wondering why. Do I have to learn all these muscles? What's really the import. see, sorry, I was drawing over this, so I hope I have enough back history, I think I do, to go back and delete all that so I don't have to actually repaint it. Cool. Go ahead and save it so I don't mess around with anything. Right, so when you learn all the muscles and insertions and where they go, you've already mastered the skeleton. If you haven't, go back and master the skeleton, it's really very important. Because that's, mastering the skeleton is the baseline of a stick figure and so if you, if you go through the mastering of the stick figure course first, you know that mastering that stick figure is so vitally important. Now your stick figure's just a whole new level so what this does is it reinforces all the information you have in your brain that you've gained from mastering the human figure, and now you're able to go, oh, I. I can see muscles attach here and here, and it's gonna help you understand exactly how the muscles will look when the arm moves around or the leg moves around. And I just gave a quick example of the arm moving up there. Knowing where muscles attach, you're just gonna easily be able to put those muscles together. And also the fibers, the direction in which the fibers of the muscles are moving is important, cuz when you draw someone very buff and ripped and flexing, you'll know where to draw the stretch marks within the muscle. And when we add the skin on it, especially like the back and stuff, you can really see, oh, okay, now I get. Exactly why there's this, line. On the human figure, why we shade that in, you know, why does that shading, that shaded area of that back muscle. If you've already watched the, one of my back tutorial muscles, which was kind of done like this, but not nearly as detailed, and we'll go to the back, we'll get a lot more detailed in that video, then you already know what I'm talking about. Right, so. So, very important to learn the muscles so don't skip this. Very important to learn the skeleton, don't skip it. I can't twist it up, I know I've been saying it a lot but I know how easy it is to get lazy. I, myself, have got very lazy when I was learning how to draw and I skipped parts of stuff. But I, you know, I just waisted time. I had to go back and do it all over again anyway. I had to go back and learn the stuff, so. Don't cut yourself short. You already paid for the course, why not put the time in? You know, put the time in, master the skeleton, you know, fairly well, where you at least you know you have this kind of shape for the pelvis, you have this kind of shape for the legs, you know, at least, you know, memorize the stick figure version of it and then you'll know. When muscles attach here to the stick figure and then the deltoid attaches here to the stick figure. When you understand all that, then you'll be able to make your figures that much more realistic when the arms moving. Because, you'll be like okay, if the arm is way up here this way, I know the pectoral muscle has to stretch from here to way up there and so they kind of take on a shape like this. I know my deltoid is going to be mostly behind. The person but I'll be able to see a little bit of it, then the bicep, and you have that little muscle there, the coracobrachialis. You know, have your tricep and so forth. And as you do that it's gonna make it so much easier. Just trust me don't skip over this stuff. Learn it, master it, do the exercises. All right, just wanna make that clear. And now we have everything matching up here with the more of a, more of a buff, buff kind of chest. Where the muscles stick out more, rather than a skinny person. But we'll be drawing some skinny people too. When we go through the some sketch practice and stuff. How to, how to apply all this stuff and when we, when we add the skin over the muscles. So much stuff is going to happen in your brain and click. You think, oh I understand why all that is, like one thing. If you don't already get it. Now, is you'll be like, in this area where you have, you have the shape where it kinda goes like this and you have these, you know, these cut shapes, right? Where there's kinda like, like this. You have that kinda shape like this? You'll understand why that shape is there, because you'll understand the muscles that are making that shape and then it's like, it's like a no brainier from that point. You just get it and you'll be able to do it every single time and you won't be having to memorize markings on the body, you'll, you'll know why those markings are there. You'll under. They're a send, under-structure of those markings and you understand this one sticks so that's why I have that, that mark in the, in the body there. And so when you memorize all this, you'll know the markings. And so when you add the skin and the fat layers on, you'll just be able to logically figure it out so much easier and smoother than you could if you didn't understand all of that. I want to get rid of this little white mark there. Okay so sorry for rambling, I just, it's so important I want, I hope you guys understand how important it is and don't underestimate the importance of it and I hope you take my words to heart and do the exercises and learn all this because when you're done, man, your figures are going to look so. So much better. You'll be able to get a, you know, professional job and it's the professionals, they've done all this. They've gone through the countless hours of drawing. You know, if you wanna be good at something, you gotta draw several times, and they've done all that. They've put the hours in, that's why they're working for Marvel. So if you wanna be one of those people that have that good job drawing what you love to draw, then you have to put the hours in, you have to do the exercises, you have to practice. Alright, let's move on to the deltoid go ahead and save this one more time
