I recently learned about a site that can help display 3d objects in a dynamic way. Using, the viewer can pitch, roll and zoom in on a 3d object. Click inside the dark rectangle above to see how it works.

Bammes Skeleton refined

I have further refined my Bammes skeleton with reference to male and female proportions. I used ZBrush’s extraction tool to create the ribs of the thorax (rib cage).

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.
