    1)Wrong forum
    2)Welcome to CA, use the search
    3)Everyone will say Peck, Bridgman, Loomis
    4)Others will say Bammes, Richer but they're foreign and weird and they speak crazy moon languages.

    Ignore anyone who says "Grays Anatomy" unless you plan to draw many spleens.

    Also "anatomy for the artist" by Tom Flynt and Peter Stanyer is horrible. Not keen on Sarah Simblett either.

    I also use the Riven Phoenix DVDs, but that is figure drawing from your mind and you have to keep up before you actually start drawng muscles etc

    If you want to make people that look like people, you have to learn muscle structure.

    I recommend George Bridgman books, Andrew Loomis books, and some Burne Hogarth books. Constructive Anatomy looks like a good book

    Albinus, Mentler and Da Vinci all have good things to say. Michaelangelo, Raphael and a ton of other old dead guys were masters of the human form.

    Masters abound. Copying them occasionally isn't a bad idea. There's some new fangled DVDs and books that are okay, but other than Mentler, the best books were done by people like Loomis and Bridgman, and you'll see their names mentioned a lot around the forum.

    Good luck.

    Do you Mentler?

    about the same as watching Food Network versus actually eating food.

    That's not an anatomy book. It's a book about rythm and dynamics within figure drawing.


    Try books that focus on the construction of anatomy rather then simply giving muscle charts. Bridgman and Bammes are good in this area. I also really like the anatomy workshops by Ron Lemen in ImagineFX.

    But I find life drawing knowledge sinks better after having poured over Bridgeman. It's like adding a structure to what I see.
