Cadaver Cast Study

I had a chance with a few other sketchers to go study medical casts and models of Cadavers recently, this one was an actual cast of part of a persons head. I believe the muscles shown are the ones that are chiefly used in expression, muscles not shown are those used for other facial functions, like chewing.

Years ago, when I used to make more 3 dimensional artwork, I spent about 2 years studying anatomy but as one of the sketchers said that day, nothing beats seeing it in three dimensions, studying others drawings and photographs of the subject will only get you so far, seeing it in the round is a revelation.
