Dren anatomy - Skeleton by Schytelizard94 Dren anatomy - Skeleton by Schytelizard94
Another "anatomical" sketch about Dren from "Splice", maybe this won't be the last :D
The human skeleton on the right (male) is there just to see the differences.
Dren skeleton was not so hard to do, a part the fifth missing finger on the hand, her skeleton is from the forehead to the legs basically human.
The problem was drawing legs. Not because they were hard, but I went out crazy with proportions.
The reason is that in one backstage video The actress who plays dren (Delphine Chančac) said that to make her feet digitally, they used a section of her arm, from the elbow to the wrist, and they modified the hands.
But the problem was that the legs seemed to long with those proportions, so I spent one hour searching pictures of Dren feet, thinking that I was wrong XD

However, I hope you enjoy it :D

I think that the movie creators made a mistake adding Dren wings. They are basicly too small to fly... Your drawing is good.

In his female adult stage I agree, they would have probably been useful only to leap further. But The male has bigger wings, as far as I remember the "shorter" one is longer than his entire arm, and the other longer than his height. I think that with a supposable light bone structure the flight isn't impossible

However thank you :)

Excellent! I'd make one suggestion: the long bone of the leg that connects to the "foot" should be two bones in order to support the anatomy of the hand/foot. The duality of bones create the ability to rotate or rock the hand/foot for walking, and add attachment points for ligaments.

Thank you so much! for the watch also :)

I think you're right, her legs are actually a second pair of hands, so they should be similar in structure with her arms.
However as long as i can remember she never "rotates" the feet, she just moves them up and down. You know like a bird or a dinosaur if we wanna make a further comparison, so i guess she don't need bone structure such as the one in radius and ulna, that is what you're talking about.
But mine is just another point of view ;)

first id like to say u did an awsome job. now there r 2 things off about this.
1. ur right about the legs. doring the dance seen and when she was younger u clearly see the fimer is shorter. if u look at how the leg bones of a bird or raptor r it will give u a better idea of leg praportions.

2. u missed the wing and dorsal finn bones.

again this is awsome and ill definetly be checking out more of ur art.

Thank you very much :D

And I know that there are mistakes, but about the wings and the finn, as I've already said a bone is a rigid structure and can not be flexible and disappear under the skin such as Dren's wings and finns do.
So I thought that they are composed by something else, like cartilage or a flexible tendin structure, so I didn't drew them
