Anantomy/Form/StructureKept rewriting the same thing, so I figure this would start saving time...
The easiest way to tackle complex problems, is to break it down as simply as possible. Instead of trying to hack into the mass of muscles, which is very difficult without some sort of ground work, we can save work by using simple forms.
The way I've heard it, we start with line, work to forms, work to values, work to colors, then we design and play as much as we want.
If you start with proportions, you have a figure that's decently the right size, then you can add forms to simplify what you're looking for. Then you can add muscles as you get more confident. The last bit is one heckuva pain and takes a loooooong time unfortunately.
