Bammes Skeleton

After taking the excellent human anatomy courses by Scott Eaton (July-August 2015), I decided to investigate further one of his favorite artists: Gottfried Bammes (1920-2007). Bammes was a professor of art at the Dresden Academy of Fine Art and is most well know for his anatomy books in particular Die Gestalt des Menschen (The Form of Man). He shows how to construct the skeleton and muscles from basic shapes. I attempted to mimic Bammes method in the embedded video using my 3D software ZBrush and Silo.

Happy New Year!

This is my first ZBrush sculpt for 2015. This year is dedicated to improving my skill in portraiture and anatomy. I’ll be doing a series of celebrity portraits. Hope you can guess this one. If not the fault is probably mine. I’m still training myself.
