The Book of Bones
I teach figure structure and artistic anatomy, I put on workshops worldwide.
I am currently developing DVD's and a manual to demonstrate my system of figure drawing without a model.
Although I will not be able to post the majority of the material here I will post some of my studies, theories and procedures relating to the human form.
check demos on my site--tell me what you think!
On my site click on galleries listed upper right

Have a lot of my galleries there ::::: plus class demos ::::: I have a system for every part of the body ::::: just need to put it down on paper ::::: the is a skull formula on site now however is am getting ready to simplify it. We will be reworking the site a lot in the next few weeks shooting zillions of new things starting some forums for are members etc.
It certainly is not to compete with forums like this we are just providing it as a service to our members!

Post of Hanging Flesh Thread!
The Bone Doctor Has a Bone to pick
It has come to my attention that some untalented s--t has posted a 4 star rating on my Domenico thread ~ they probably did not like the subject matter ~ which I will agree is not that pleasant ~ it is supposed to be a little naive because it is medieval dah! ~ this is about skill not subject matter ~ nobody gives a f--k what you like ~ if you don't like it, or don't understand it, just go away ~ I need my supporters to correct this issue by going to the Domenico thread below and posting 5 stars ~ otherwise I am going to take my works and go home ~ life is to short to deal with clueless Philistines!!!!!!
Supination, semi-pronation and pronation
A couple of recent thumbnail studies on this difficult subject.
The important thing here is to treat the ulna as articulating (belonging to)
the upper arm and the radius as articulating with the hand.
The ulna acts as a lever, only moving toward or away from the shoulder.
The radius moves with the hand. The position of the hand tells you the action of the radius. The radius is always where the thumb is.
(1) Outside Views ~ all three positions
(2) Outside and Inside views ~ all three positions
Throw Me All the Bones You Want!
THX: JadeDragon ~ Am trying to pass along my humble knowledge.
Amaze myself everyday by what I don't know.
That is why the operative word is create.
We are always in the vortex of creation.
Starting 10 weeks of new workshops today,
will try to post some of model break demos as we go along.
Keep Throwin' Bones ~ it keeps me going!
