I'm starting a new character and I figured I'd take the time to do some more anatomy studying. So while I'm working on my base mesh I'm going to be doing some planar studying of the female figure. This is inspired by George Bridgeman's constructive anatomy.
I haven't spent too much time on it yet, but I wanted to get it online and start getting feedback early. If it turns out well I plan on uploading it online to be downloaded for FREE, and to be used however one pleases.
I've seen a lot of really great ecorche projects online but they're often times really expensive, or, still developing. I want to create a model that could be thrown into zbrush and used for reference, or can be sent to the 3D printing source of your choice, or maybe even used as a base mesh for your next project.
I see it as a way to improve my own skills and also share something that can help others.
I'm mostly concerned with the planes and landmarks of the female figure. I don't intend to block out the muscles, however, I like to block some of them out in order to fully understand the planes.
I'm drawing reference from sources such as:Anatomy4SculptorsGeorge BridgemanRafael Grassetti
Ryan Kingslien's ecorche in Zbrush
Various Tumblr photography sites
Anatomy books that I own
I hope that this project goes well and that it can be helpful. Please feel free to post critiques, comments, anatomical references, paintovers, etc.
Thanks for checking it out!
