Day 21: Pectoralis Major

Muscle 22: Adductor Magnus  (and Longus, and Brevis) Aka the thigh gap muscles.
This collection of muscles help pull your legs together. Like when you have to pee and hold it in.

Day 24: Biceps

Muscle 25: Brachialis aka Biceps best friend
Arms two days in a row, because the Brachialis is an important part of what makes biceps peak.
and yes, your arms have Biceps Brachii, Brachialis, and Brachioradialis all next to each other. Because that's how you name stuff...
Just be lucky we aren't going any deeper into the Biceps, they have a long and short head, and the long head is the shorter one. - this dude does a great video series on workouts, but he draws the muscles on himself to show how they work. It's great for seeing where they're supposed to be and where they move when you flex.

Day 25: Brachialis

Muscle 26: Serratus Anterior aka the top of the zippers
While they technically start on the back, they're only visible on the body towards the front in the small part between the lats and the obliques where they zip together.

Day 26: Serratus Anterior

Muscle 27: Tensor fasciae latae aka I had no idea there was a muscle there until gluteus maximus day.
This little guy attaches to a important tendon that runs from your hip and the top of your butt muscle down the outside of your thighs to your knee.
very rarely significantly seen, it is the farthest "out" muscle for your hips/butt area and important for side kicks and learning how the torso and legs connect.

Day 27: Tensor Fasciae latae

Muscle 28: Teres Major  aka That's not the lats bro.

The teres major, partly situated under the lats, can both show up on it's own, or push the lats farther out. Occasionally giving the lats a "double bump" in the armpit area.

This guy hiding under the Achilles tendon I've been inadvertently drawing without realizing it was a different muscle since Calves day.

Day 29: Soleus

Muscle 30: Corrugator supercilii  aka  the Angry Muscle
Thanks again to Desi for the reccomendation!
This lil guy, hidden under your frontalis and obicularis muscle is responsible for pulling your eyebrows together when you're sad or pissed off.

Day 30: Corrugator Supercilii

Muscle 31: The Heart
Of course I had to be cheesy on the last day.
I spent this whole month drawing what I love, learning about it, and somehow stuck with it every single day.
This has been an amazing experience for me, and I hope somehow it helps others as much as it's helped me.
Thank you to everyone who supported me through these exercises. (mostly on discord, which is why it's not in this thread btw)
So for tomorrow, just draw what your heart tells you.
(or an actual heart, if you really want too...)

Day 31: Heart

And that's it!  Thank you again to everyone who cheered me on through this exercise~
This has been an incredible help to me, and something I certainly should have done earlier.
Oh, and If you ever need muscle/anatomy practice you can still drop it in the thread here! Though I'd recommend poking me on discord too, just in case. ^_^

Hopefully I'll see you all in this thread next year!

Day 1: Sternocleidomastoid

We're back again! Muscle May 2!
Every day a different muscle, some will be repeats from last year, others will be new. All depends on what needs a little more flexing.
Same as last time, jump in wherever you need, and I'll do my best to help you figure out how to flex those art muscles.
Don't forget to check last years entries for more examples and references.
Muscle 1: Sternocleidomastoid

Muscle 2: Triceps Brachii   aka Triceps

Nice work Arts~ and I look forward to seeing your stuff Inky!
Also, in a bit of a "why didn't I realize this earlier?" moment, I finally found out why that gap in the sternum and clavicle is rarely pronounced. There's a muscle layer covering the lot of it. Might make a whole day out of it later, but introducing the Platysma:

This thin layer from the chin to the clavicle bone near completely covers the neck muscles. While it's job is mostly just moving the jaw, it and the skin on top of it smooth out a lot of the bumps and lines in the average neck. Obviously, bodybuilders who workout those muscles have definition that shows through this, but it's presence helps explain why that gap between the sternum and clavicle connection of the Sternocleidomastoid is usually only visible in the most extreme flexes, and instead looks more like a smoothed bump.

I tried to show how that functioned on your piece Arts, hope you don't mind the Redline.

The Sternocleidomastoid is a muscle I've learned and re-learned each time I tried to it seems. But the Platysma covering it is often not shown in diagrams when you're learning these muscles. Since it'd cover them all up and be hard to see, it makes sense, but it shows I've got more to learn here too.

Time to start on the Triceps~

Day 6: Gastrocnemius

Muscle 7: Erector Spinae

They're under your lats and traps, but do a lot to give them that spine line. Mostly only distinctly visible on the lower back.
