Step 1 – Proportions
A very crucial step that you want always start with and keep on check during the process. Proportions are measurements done in the body to make sure our 3D model is at correct scale with the real body. Obviously scale/sizes do differ but it is always important to follow the average scale of the body. Because our male anatomy figure ecorche is in a anatomical position we will be measuring with head height.
There are a few ways to measure but we recommend using cranial measurements specifically when working with posed character/figure because you can’t track measurement when measuring with heads once you pose, so measuring with heads is best for A-Pose or T-pose characters/figures. You can use our male anatomy figure ecorche as your reference to follow along.
Step 2 – Block outs
For this step we will be using a different approach than our female ecorche sculpting tutorial. First build up your basic forms keeping in mind the anatomy and the origin and insertion, try also not to fuss about details at this stage. Once your basic block out is in place you can start with sketching the muscle groups on your model and do this carefully as this is going to be the foundation for your figure. You can use our male ecorche anatomy figure as your reference to follow along.
Step 3 – Primary forms
Step 3 we focus on the primary forms. The primary forms represents the bigger shapes of your figure or character, so this step is very important please spend more time on it. Now we will be using our guide lines we sketched in step 2 to build up our bigger forms around those lines, on this step we take into consideration the proportions & silhouette. It is very important to check proportions again after making huge changes on your mesh. Because our anatomy figure is in anatomical position, 7 & a half heads where used for measurement. You can use our male ecorche anatomy figure as your reference to follow along.
