Necks for anatomy practice

Thu Jul 12, 2012, 7:12 PM


I need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.

To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.

Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with  are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)

If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd love it if you'd post a link in the comments. :-)

(Other parts of the body will get the same treatment at some point.)
