Ecorchè: The Thorax

This week we worked on refining the details of the thorax (rib cage). The thorax has an interesting shape in that from the front, it has an egg shape to it, and from the sides it looks like a football with the ends sliced off. There are certain landmarks that help you determine how wide it is. For example, the widest part on the side of the thorax is the 8th rib. The furthest point forward is the cartilage of the 7th rib. There are some distinctive formulas that must be followed in order to get the body looking proportional.

By the time I got done modeling in all of those ribs, I was hungry for barbecue for some reason...
