We were given hand outs and had to copy the animal skeleton. we were then given another animal. ( Mine was like a reindeer) and we had to combine the two. its a good technique for creating creatures as you can get walk cycles and bone structures accurate this way.
We drew a dog skeleton and drew muscles over the top. the next exercise was to draw two dogs. one was traditional and the other had a muscle disorder (Tracy:- below) like what cows get and that makes them twice as big as they should be. its good to draw because they are very defined.
