In going through some of my old art I was drawn to the various random drawings of bodies I made throughout the years, most of them with the intention of figuring out how anatomy worked and exploring how bodies fit together. Strangely enough, with most of these there were no references at all, just me and a pencil and paper trying to Figure It Out.
I thought it might be fun to share a bunch of them, so you can see how things changed over the years. These don’t result in a comprehensive timeline by any means, and it’s obvious by looking at these that, though I might be getting better over time, growth is not linear, and that’s okay! I was still learning and that all counts!
Be aware: Drawings of nude figures below the cut.
