Making this model gave me pause for the simple reason that I’d never modelled a heavy-set “endomorph” form before. What I’ve come to realise (and what I probably would have learned very early on if I had ever been classically trained) is that it is not enough to know muscular forms. I used to have this idea that only some vague diagrammatic sense of musculature was necessary, and that some sort of instinct(seriously) would take over- some sort of magic intuition which could hammer out form without the guidance of the cerebral cortex. This is, of course, wishful thinking. What I find myself doing now is 50% mental diagrams muscle relationships (antagonistic, same origins, same insertions etc) and 50% looking in insane places for reference material: in this case, at old-timey wrestlers.
