Muscle Anatomy Mannikin

Greetings fellow Blenderers,

I am making a colour-coded muscle mannikin!

Muscles have been parented to the grey cylinders these (the grey cylinders) can be moved with bones.

Where a muscle is attached to two bone cylinders (the lower and upper arms for example), the muscle has been separated into two objects.

I am hoping that I will be able to pose my muscle mannikin into dynamic poses without having to do too much adjusting.

TIP: I find a render without lights (making a silhouette) helps me decide which areas (muscles and bones) don’t look right and need adjusting.


Cool idea. Let’s see where this goes…

Nice idea and great start.
