VideoTutorial on Drawing the Male Chest Front View by Dex91 VideoTutorial on Drawing the Male Chest Front View by Dex91



This VideoTutorial is about the Basics for the Male Chest Front View.
The next one will be about the Basics for the Male Chest Back and Side View!
Since this is about the Basics, i don't delve deep into the details: what matters here is the Big Picture, not the Details.

Be patient, we will begin adding Details as soon as the Basics for the Chest are done :) (and the next videotutorial is the last for the Basics)

I think that, in order to truly gain the ability to draw muscular structures like pectorals, you need to spend time practicing with live models. There's no substitute for live modeling because it's 3D. Drawing from other's work and stock photos can be useful in observing different techniques and strategies but to truly learn the structure of the human form, it helps to draw from one. This tutorial is useful in establishing a cannon or system for creating somewhat accurate proportions but, everyone is different. I think for someone that just wants to draw people and has a hard time visualizing the structure this tutorial helps but, for me it's too formulaic and there's an issue with part-to-part ordering where the artist starts at one spot and travels across the page filling in details. I would start with the overall shape and then start to narrow down the details (gesture drawing). This avoids running of the edges of the format which can cause a natural tendency to want to truncate limbs so they fit. But, great job it sounds like a lot of people benefited from this and I commend your good intentions to teach others.
Great tutorial, thanks!

Took me forever to figure out that stuff when I was just starting out with anatomy.
