Example text

Flexed, Posterior View The calf muscles can really bunch up when flexed. The split in the gastrocnemius becomes visible when the muscle tightens up. It appears to be two different muscle groups, but actually, it’s two heads of the same muscle. Fully half of the lower leg is covered by the Achilles tendon. Not every muscle is superdefined on the outline of the figure, because that would result in an outline that’s bumpy all over. The outline of the figure is certainly influenced by the various muscle groups, but just as important, you must be sure to draw a smooth transition between the groups, even if that requires losing some definition.

It just looks like one smooth muscle. The definition lines remain on the actual muscles below the skin, however; you just can’t see them. From this angle, the deltoid looks like an upside-down teardrop. Note how the point of the teardrop lands in the middle of the upper arm, at the brachialis muscle. You can allow the lines of the brachialis to trail off without much definition, especially when a character is relaxed. Flexed In the flexed view, you can clearly see how the deltoid muscle funnels down to meet the thin brachialis on the outside of the upper arm.

Things that block the light will cast shadows onto other things. Let’s look at a few examples to see how it works. Overhead Light Since all bodies are built in more or less the same way, light hits us all in a similar fashion, creating the same types of shadows. Most often, we’re affected by overhead lighting, which takes the form of either indoor ceiling lights, sunlight, or moonlight. So once you familiarize yourself with the cast shadows caused by overhead light, you can use it effectively in pose after pose, on any character, as your general form of lighting.
