Draw accurate bones and muscle

Anatomy is a huge subject and requires a blend of scientific information and artistic practicality. For example, you need an engineering-like understanding of how the skeletal joints work to construct your figures. But if you don't know how to draw well enough to get a good gesture, no technical understanding of the joints is going to save you from awkward-looking movement. 

Too many artists get stuck on one side or the other: either having a complete understanding of medical anatomy, but being unable to draw a convincing- looking bicep. Or having enough figure-drawing experience to be able to fake the form, but not really understanding what they’re doing and inevitably drawing something physically impossible.
