Arms and legs guides? As in muscles and stuff, I feel like the ones I make look stiff and lifeless.

Throw in torso too if you want.

The best thing to do is to draw actual musculature. Find some books like "Anatomy for the Artist". It will give you all sorts of information on muscle and bone structure without all the medical jargon. In order to draw muscles with skin on them, you need to know how to draw bones and muscles without the skin. It's like how you need to draw nude models so you can better show how people look with clothes on them. Humans are a bunch of layers. You need to know what lies underneath.

Afraid not. But most of my books are purchased on Amazon, used, and this one sells used for $13. And it's a big book packed with lots of illustrations so you get your money's worth.

That's the book I have and I've found it useful. Artists like Da Vinci did anatomy work by looking at real dissected cadavers, but with books like this there's no need! Haha. I have a whole sketch book full of anatomical drawings.

It's been awhile since I've drawn something due to recent Photoshop technicalities.

But I do recall the basics and looking back at my previous artwork and comparing the growth makes me feel accomplished.
I would like to thank this thread for some of the encouragement, helpful critism and even the requests that people wished that game me the option to test and branch my abilities.

I seriously don't understand this elitism wherever you go on the internet, it's fucking websites, plus deviant has great artist, some of the best in the industry post their free time works there. If you only find shit, it's because you only focus on the shit.

There we go. I say ONE,ONE criticism (and you better fucking believe I have reasons to),and suddenly it's "OH MY GOD ELITICISM". You throw big words around to call others narrow-minded but you are purposedly ignoring the substance of what I said. I've seen a lot of this site,and you assume I "only look at shit". I looked at how the "mods" did their "job" and how the admin was behaving and there's absolutely nothing professional about that. This website is handled like a cash-cow.

Dude,this is nothing compared to cghub. DeviantArt exists to make money and be a forum of bullshit drama,the majority of people there is more concerned about pageviews or e-fame or llamas than actual achievement,and it's not because you have a few professional artists that put their work on there too that it's really living up to its domain name. You may not have been there but I've seen the administrator get into so much drama for banning mods arbitrarily,meanwhile said mods would decide that certain stamps like pro-homosexuality tolerance or pro-abortion stamps had to be taken down or censored while pro-christian bullshit could stay. The frontpages are stuffed with fetishist crap that however don't get moderated out. You got actual nazies in there making hateful journals and somehow the mods are more concerned with petty squabbles between Disney popufurs.

Deviant Art admin loves to talk a lot about how it's the most popular artistic place of the internet but he cares a lot more about subscrition money than anything else.

So don't give me no shit.

You just want to say "ur rong",do you actually care yourself.


DeviantArt is not a place to care about if you want to go very far in art. You have to look at your paper and produce. What I am going to do once I finish my can of beans. I used to hang out a lot on DeviantArt for asspats until I realized how it's just a stupid distraction. I'm only there for friends,and for junk that I like to watch or sell shit for money but that don't have necessarily a lot to do with getting me advanced or inspired. CGhub was the one place where all the professionals would hang out and dump all of their concept art until it got taken down for unknown reasons and it's a big loss.

well yeah. you were wrong. it makes me hard proving people wrong.

I don't really care about where the professionals went, to be honest. I'm not a professional, nor will I ever be.
While I understand it's a loss, it's not one I feel any need to be particularly bothered about, especially since I have other means of following artists i like.

still,maybe it's just me leaving that mindset,but communication on dA has been slowly,but steadily stagnating....
