Anatomical Sketchdump by Sabtastic Anatomical Sketchdump by Sabtastic
My Sabtastical Adventure to BodyWorlds:

I went to this Show, BodyWorlds, with my two younger siblings, (~pickletoez is one of them) back in early June. Honestly, it was the coolest exhibition I've ever seen in my life. The exhibition had real human bodies, plastisized and on display. There were skeletons, brains, lungs, hearts, arteries, kidneys, eyeballs.. and balls. ..lots of balls. No, I don't have pictures. Anyway. If you EVER get the opportunity to go and see this for yourself, I highly recommend it. It's fascinating.

I GOT TO HOLD A REAL HUMAN LUNG!! D:
it was.. squishy, spongy and oddly firm.

I took ages to go through the exhibits, only because I insisted on sketching anything that caught my attention. They even made me sign a RELEASE form just to sketch these ..so uh.. Don't sell this or I'm in trouble. C:

Enjoy!! :D

__________________________________
FACT: The black spots on the sketch of the lung are what the typical 60 year-old non-smoking human accumulates. (due to pollution, second-hand smoke, etc) Normal, un-polluted lungs appear pale pink, and cancerous, ruined lungs appear grey-black and splotchy.

Man, do I love anatomy sketch dumps, but so far only your's is going straight in to my favs!

Nice picture, I'll rate it a solid 9/10 for sheer skill, 'cause I know from experience that trying to draw something as simple as human bodyparts can be a nightmare! :D

Makes sense, since anatomy can be fun, incredibly hard and educational to draw all in the same time, but I mainly got hooked into it because of all the books on surgery and medical profession that fill the bookcases :P

+ skeletons are awesome to draw :3

Yeah, it's a lot of fun. Are you getting it for PS3? Darth Vader > Yoda. Though I hear that since Yoda's all short and stubby he's the ultimate cheap character, since he's immune to grabs and most of the strikes go over his head.

If you get it for PS3 we should totally duel. My account name is LiveOxy.

I can hardly afford the game istelf, forget a PS3. :XD:
Guess I'm stuck with the cheap little green midget.
..Maybe one day, when I retire to my island with pool-boys that give me more tips - I'll have the money. :B

interesting! i missed my opportunity to see this exhibit when it came to a city by me. i was a bit freaked out by it, then later in the year i took comparative anatomy + lab(lots of dissections). The body can be so interesting from an artistic viewpoint, particularly the muscles in my opinion. great sketches
Reply
:iconsabtastic:
Sabtastic Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
I agree.
Personally, dissection and guts just gross me out, but for some reason, if I have to draw it, or I'm looking at it from an artistic perspective, it doesn't bother me a bit! D:

The bone structure, movement and muscle groups interest me the most. It's neat to see roughly which direction the muscles go, where they stop, start, etc.

makitaki Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2008
yea, and the body is so detailed and intricate it takes a really trained eye to capture it properly. in my opinion learning about our insides- skeletal and muscular systems, are really important for any artist who is interested in life drawing.
