Muscles of the Upper Leg: Instructor Feedback

In Anatomy class, when you post early in the week you get graded right away. I like this because it gives me a chance to redo things and learn more. I decided I'm redoing all work necessary to maintain at least an A- average in this class. I think it's the only way I'll get the most out of it. Here's the instructor feedback from one of the drawings from yesterday's post. This is a great way for me to chart my progress.

See in the shoulder the idea of the seams on a shirt. In the pelvis see the way the wedge of the upper torse comes down in the middle of the back plane. See how x is slightly deeper than Y as it is turned to the side and away from the light. You need to know this plane structure as the values are too subtle to see on your own. The 8th rib is at z and so the form below this will tilt down as the 8th is the widest. Just remember that it is slightly below the bottom of the scapula. The bottom of the gluteals in the back slant down and out and do not go straight across. That is just the crease. The legs are slightly short which takes away from the elegance of this figure. Look for the halfway point on a more idealized model to be near this. The head is a bit rounded. When you really look it is quite angular.

It's funny how things work out. I was planning on redoing the other one as I thought this one was the better of the two. Now I can see it's the other way around. I'll post the redo later in the week.
