Shoulder Anatomy

In my anatomical visualizations class our first project was to illustrate the shoulder joint with the rotator cuff muscles posteriorly and some of the ligaments anteriorly. It’s important to get the exact measurements and proportions correct (we tend to draw what we know and not what we see), so we used various tools and references for the construction of these drawings.

I’m not too thrilled with the composition of the anterior view as it’s hard to see the conoid coracoclavicular ligament. I’ll probably be redrawing it for the final critique and presentation at the end of this semester. Otherwise I’m pretty happy with the posterior view and I like the drawing itself on the anterior side. First project down, four more to go.
