Here are the abdominals for my mankin. They were quite challenging to make, especially the obliques. I think it was just because they cover so much surface area and have a small area to attach to the manikin. As frustrating as building in clay can be, it is a good thing to practice. People in general retain little of what they hear, but can remember well what they do with their hands. Knowing the attachments and bellies of muscles will make my drawings more dynamic. I'll be able to bring a more realistic tension to the correct areas as I draw my lines, as well as showing relaxation without things sagging out of place or looking flat.
