    Good or Bad resource?

    I just found this link to a series of anatomy instructional video's which can be viewed online:

    http://thestructureofmandvd.blogspot.com/

    Should I invest in these DVD's? Seems like the guy repeats himself a lot and I'm not sure if this is worth the time and $$.

    Has anyone seen this before or offer any insight?

    I watched a few videos of it back when it was free, I think I only watched the first 10 lessons. The jist of it seems to be measuring things out in perspective by using bone landmarks. I thought there were problems with the pacing, he wasn't very organized so some things took longer to explain than they should have. I thought it was okay as a free resource, but I wouldn't spend money on it.

    thats really odd, a few days back i stumbled upon this as well.

    i watched the first video of him talking about making the 'form of man creature that isnt human' and it sounded like bullshit to me.

    it sounded a bit as though english eluded him. i'm not sure why he didnt just flat out say "this first video is how to get the anotomical landmark proportions correct for the standard figure" instead of his weird-ass vernacular of semi-art speak.

    i didnt watch any of the later videos, but it looked as though he finally got around to drawing somewhat accurate figures. i couldnt imagine shelling out money to listen to that guy ramble though.

    Yeah the rambling really got me, I think I'll stick with Loomis.

    ...Funny you mentioned 'stumbled upon' since that's how I found it...using the 'Stumble' Firefox snap-in. :-D
