Anonymous asked: This one is sorta specific but do you have any references/tutorials for characters with multiple limbs or arms? Such as how the muscles and bone structure would look as well possibly too?
i coulds’t find anything sorry :( maybe our followers can submit some references?
I can’t show you references, but I can explain some of the structure - the structure of a set of front limbs depends on its function. We use ours for grasping, dogs use theirs for walking. Wings are for flight. If you double or increase the number of limbs, you’ve got to add all the supporting musculature and bone as well. A good number of the muscles of your chest and back are used to move your arms. If you add an extra set of arms, you’re going to need to double-up those muscles. (yes, this means that you’ll have two sets of everything- pectorals, shoulder blades, clavicles, etc.). You might get away with fusing the shoulderblades - one set of blades with two attachments, to make the arms move as one - or having all clavicles meet at one point (and have one massive sternum), but you’re adding a LOT of tissue. Most people just slap wings on, without the support structure.
Good references you might find would be for Goro from mortal combat, and something from /co/. I don’t know who the artist is, but try this image.
Yes, it’s twisted, weird fan-art of a gender-swapped schoolgirl General Grievous, but it illustrates a realistic attachment plan.
Scans that prove Leonardo da Vinci was right all along: New show reveals ‘startling accuracy’ of anatomical sketches which lay undiscovered for hundreds of years
The startling accuracy of Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical drawings will be highlighted by a new exhibition that compares the artist’s work with modern medical scans.
Long praised as one of the finest artists of the Renaissance era and a visionary inventor, da Vinci’s work as an anatomist was also well ahead of its time.
The forthcoming show will pitch his studies of the human body against today’s high tech medical imaging technologies to show just how groundbreaking his investigations of the human body were.
Thirty sheets of the artist’s work kept by the Royal Collection Trust are set for display at the Edinburgh International Festival in August to show just how far-sighted da Vinci’s work was.
Da Vinci first began researching the human body to help him keep his paintings as ‘true to nature’ as possible, but the project soon took on a life of its own and he had ambitions to write an illustrated treatise on anatomy.
