The Male Figue - Front View

The male figure as viewed from the front. The main muscle groups that the comic artist needs to know are shown here.
See the numbers 1 - 8 on the left side of the figure? They represent how many "heads tall" the heroic figure is. This is a great tool to help keep your proportions correct in your drawing!

Oh yeah, see all those funny Latin names for the muscles?
Be sure you guys memorize them, 'cause there's gonna be
a test!
