Hello everyone. I haven't posted in a while again. (Seems to be the traditional introduction on this blog now.) Anyway, during the spring I was taking an Ecorche course for my MFA program. The concept is that you can learn anatomy by building the human figure from the inside out. Like a reverse dissection. Rather than cut in from the outside, you build it up. So, over the course of fifteen weeks, I modeled a half scale model of the human figure. I started out with building an armature and modeling the skeleton. Then I layered up the musculature from the deep muscles to the surface ones. I definitely learned a lot. I realize that some of my anatomy is off, but overall, it was a great experience. Anyway, since I haven't had many other projects I can show yet, I thought I would post this to show the end result of the ecorche course.
