Just finished detailing the muscles. Very excited!
Spent today finalizing & adding depth to the wolf skeleton today. I love his expression! Tomorrow, I’ll be consulting with my professor before adding the final details to the human muscles.
Sketched in the leg muscles and some more on the upper arm and added a lot of detail to the bones on the lefthand side. Worked on the drawing for around 8 hours.
This past Sunday, I took some time out from my anatomy studies to move forward on some encaustic pieces that have been hanging around.
These first 2 are 99.9% done, but just need to be fused.
This is maybe halfway done:
And this is still only about 1/3 of the way done, just after the web has been gently fused in a bit:
Began working on the torso muscles tonight after work. Those weren’t too bad, but the upper arm is tricky from the armpit up because of the angle and twist of the way it is raised. Feel like I’m at a stopping point tonight (also my back is killing me), so I’ll get here bright & early Saturday morning with fresh eyes & body and keep on chugging along.
Finally have the wolf skeleton blocked in better. Still needs some fine tuning, though.
