Continuing with the new 'Force' book, this post focuses on the back view of the chest, shoulders and blades.
Here are some of my notes from the book:
EXERCISES AND TIPS:
1. Start by drawing flat-shaped diagrams of the back’s regions. Start with the following: a. Shoulder blades—Find the top ninety degree angle of the inner shoulder blade. Then, use this information to help define the trapezius. b. Trapezius—Connect it to the base of the skull, the far corners of the shoulders, and drop the dagger shape down the spine.
2. Try applying these flat regions to figure drawings, presenting the back in all different angles and functions. 3. Then, add form to the muscle, shape map.
