Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. The first picture is the Lesson 4 drawing, The second picture is a by imagination, the third a sketch made from a photo. Both I feel show that my understanding of the underlying muscle and bone structure is improving a little. The right side arm on the 2nd sketch doesn't seem quite right to me (constructive criticism is welcome).

I'm sorry I am answering your message so late, I missed it somehow. I will prepare a couple of sketches and I will post them in the next few days. Overall the anatomy is correct, you just need to practice drawing the arm to achieve a more fluid, natural feel. Use images from photos and try to identify the muscles that you see and compare them with the diagram, you can also try to check your own muscles and identify them. I hope this helps for now. Best Roberto

I was looking at the figure drawings you posted in this message and they are pretty good, I was thinking you could use them for this exercise: put 2 layers of tracing paper over them, in the first you draw the skeleton, in the second draw the muscles, this will give you an awareness of the underlying layers and structure of the body. This being said, your drawings are very structural, especially the figure of the man walking with arm extended. You can also do this exercise using the copies from the masters you already did. Ciao Roberto
