Male Anatomy Patterns by Snigom Male Anatomy Patterns by Snigom
Alright, the one a few have been waiting for. The patterns for the male are less complicated than the female patterns. Go figure ;). There is also quite a bit more explanation than before.

There is a section of major differences between male and female parts (other than the obvious) that cause distinction between genders.

I hope this tutorial helps.

So...any other Anatomy tutorial suggestions that might be helpful?

Update: Wow...a DD after....6 years of posting work! Awesome! It couldn't have happened to a better piece of work. I hope it enriches the skills of any and all who use them. :dance:

Amazing how much a little basic anatomy can help make a good picture, or sculpture. Of course, I don't have to worry about perspective and foreshortening -- I just have to get the anatomy right 360 degrees around!

Of course, once you know the rules, you're free to bend or break them, but starting from a reference like this helps. Some of my pieces I intentionally go a little abstract, but even then, it's important to understand the proportions you are twisting...

Thanks!

Any tips on how to draw males with less muscle and in a more androgynous form without loosing the male completely in it? What are the most essential differences, besides muscle tone?

And love this tutorial, always had problems with males, females seemt to come to me more naturally

Snigom Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
That's a good question. The essential differences will be the Pelvis and Rib cage. that must remain male for arms legs, you can either use female versions or use more rounded edges on the outline and use little to no inside detail.

The real trick is knowing your character. How old are they, are they athletic, etc. Not all males are muscular, especially at 18. One of the things I did was to buy magazines and literally draw all the people in the magazine.1) it takes you out of your comfort zone. 2) you draw more varied body types. 3) you learn clothing pretty quick :)

I would find specific reference for the body type you want and draw it as many times as you can. The patterns should still hold true :)

hope that helps. :)

It's been a while since somebody's made a good tutorial on male's anatomy, especially with all the little things such as the belly buttons and hips.

Yeah, it's not 100%, there are always variations (of course) but having some generalizations to work with can help significantly.
