to do a good life-drawing, you need to have a good idea of anatomy. (Click the links to see the definitions).

I guess this is a thread linking my interests in art and animals- as obviously to understand the workings of a body, you need to understand how it is made up. And in a similar way, to make a good painting or photograph, you really have to understand the make-up of its composition, ie how the human or animal body is constructed, if its a portrait.

There have been some amazing paintings and sketches done of Anatomy over the years…
