Discover the simple but powerful formula artists have used for centuries to draw the human figure from the inside out. Guided by fine artist Roberto Osti, you'll learn how to realistically replicate the underlying structure of the body using easy-to-understand scales and ratios. Conceptualize the front and side views of the skeleton with basic shapes, and add detail with simplified depictions of complex bones and joints. Bring your sketch to life as you draw a muscle map of the body with volumetric form and realistic dimension, and master the feet, hands and skull to create a strikingly realistic rendering of the human form.
