+SERRATUS ANTERIOR : REDUX+ by jinx-star +SERRATUS ANTERIOR : REDUX+ by jinx-star
A redux of the previous study on Serratus Anterior. It was hastily drawn up that time and I have been wanting to do a neater version since then.

I have Burne Hogarth's book on Dynamic Anatomy for years. Only recently I started reading in details. :P To correctly place the Serratus Anterior, imagine a line starting at the pit of the neck, 45 degree down, past the nipple and there you have it.

The maximum number of Serratus slots a human can have is six but that 6th slot is only visible when the arms are raised. In drawing, it makes sense to stick to 5 slots or less. In reality, this particular muscle group are hard to build and most guys have to work really hard (and must be very lean) to have all 5 of their Serratus Anterior show up.

Awesome work I would like to use your concept to practice designing male anatomy.

May I.

I have practice it already but I really like the hands behind the back and the abs.

I picked up a hardback of Burne Hogarth's "Dynamic Anatomy" seven years ago. I'ts no wonder to me that a hardback of his in mint condition could go for two thousand something dollars on Amazon, Hogarth was a genius! It really is going for that much on Amazon right now.

All hail Brune Hogarth. I have a bunch of his books. ^^; My personal favorite is actually the dynamic wrinkles one.

So there really are five of those, huh? But normally only three and maybe four show. Hmm. I didn't know that. I did know about the nipple thing though. :) Not that you care. I'll shut up now. ^^;
