Anatomy Study Recommendations
«: August 09, 2009, 01:20:39 AM»
Since anatomy seems to be a widespread problem here, let's start compiling some useful links and book recommendations for those of us who need help (including me).

--

Websites:

http://fineart.sk/ - I was recommended this website by a nice man in an art shop I browsed for books in today. He recommended the work of Andrew Loomis, who is mentioned on this website. Apparently there are lots of references there.

http://www.posemaniacs.com - There are a lot of poses, male an female, to choose from. There are a few walking cycles that are pretty cool as well as close ups of parts like hands, feet, etc.

http://characterdesigns.com/index.php?sitepage=photosets - NSFW

http://ipgd.freehostia.com/ - Matter's famous copypasta signature. Lots and lots of recommendations here.

Books:

"Classical Drawing Atelier" by Juliette Aristides (This was recommended to me, I haven't check it out yet.)

"Anatomy For The Artist" (There are a TON of books under this name. I'm not sure which one is the best, I'll update this if anyone has a recommendation for a specific one.)

http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/Loomis%20Figure%20Draw.pdf - This is a .pdf file of a Loomis figure drawing book. It's angled toward artists who wish to market their work.

That's all I have for now, but I'll try and update it as much as I can, but I need you guys to start giving me some recommendations for books and links! Meanwhile, I'll keep on searching. If you have a problem about any of the links or books listed, please bring it up. I don't want crap on this list. XD

This is why I need to stop posting while talking to people, so I can think first. I meant to go fish through your links once I got a good chunk of my summer reading done... I should stop now before I procrastinate more. Anyway, I'll edit.

Go to Deviantart.com

Just type "Tutorial" into the searchbar.


There's also lots of stock photography on there. Just type something like "male nude stock" or "female action stock" depending on your purpose. Study and draw what you see.


Yes, it's a very popular site but it's oven overlooked for that sort of thing.
