Complete Human Figure Anatomy Drawing Course

Riven Phoenix has an absolutely massive a very comprehensive course on drawing human anatomy. This is a space to organize my personal notes on it as I work through it. These pages are not a replacement for watching any of the videos, just some commentary that will hopefully make them easier to digest.
