Hey guys, it's Chris here. And today I'm going to show you how to draw muscles on a beast. So what I'm going to do is we are just going to start off with a couple of eyes here. Maybe he has those slanty eyes that are kind of sharp. And just a little bit mean. I'm going to give him a little bit of a snout here. And he's smiling a little bit in an evil kind of smile. So maybe he's a little bit fuzzy. He's got some horns or something. Alright then for the muscles what I'm going to do is I'm going to just kind of go along the side here and kind of make him just very rounded around the shoulders. Just kind of give the illusion of him having some very large shoulder muscles. Bring that a little bit in and then maybe he's flexing. So this is the elbow here and this is where the arms are going to be. I'm going to do the same thing on the other side. And then for the hand I'm just going to go up like that. And go along like that. And now for the inside of the shoulder muscle I'm just going to kind of do a bulge as well just like that. Maybe if you have a pencil or something you can do a little bit of shading right there just to show the contours of the muscles and the way that they set on the bone. And on this side you can do kind of the same thing. And then we want to give him some pec muscles here. For his legs maybe some big thigh muscles so I'm going to go down just like that. And kind of just keep it, keep it rounder on the sides. It's got knees here. And maybe he's got some hooves. And then for the inside of the thigh you are also going to want to make sure that it's very, very rounded. He's got big thigh muscles. Go just like that and then continue just like on the other side. Give him a little bit of a hoof. And like I said if you have a pencil or a pen you can always do some shading. If you want to do crosshatching if you have like a pen you can do that as well just by doing something like that. And basically just do your own thing you know. Alright guys and that's how you do muscles on a beast. Good luck and stay creative.
