Ecorchè: Refining the Skull

This is turning out to be one of my favorite classes, mainly because it is an exercise in learning, not in creating some beautiful piece of art. It is supposed to solidify inside your head the 3D forms of the human body... and by golly it works!

This week we learned about the different parts of the skull and how it is divided up. I'm also starting to learn the actual names of the important visual landmarks of the skull. The photos you see here aren't perfect, though. The jaw is a bit short. I need to go back and rework it, but it is close.

Next week we focus on the thorax (rib cage). Should be interesting.
