    Anatomy Book

    Hi. I dont' know if this thread must be here then sorry if I'm wrong puting it here.
    I'm searching a nice anatomy book reference (forgive my poor indian english, I'm from spain). I used the "search" tool of the forum and I found a nice database with websites and images that you use, but I didn't found anything about books.
    I'm here to ask you for one anatomy book that you recomend me. I will buy in website if it is necessary.
    Can you say some title please?
    (If you have it and can put some scan to see it I'll love you!! xDD)

    Soory again for my poor english. I hope you understand my words.

    Bye and thx!!

    Anatomy for Artists by Barrington Barber... Awesome book to use with a couple other books. (Loomis in particular.)

    I hate to disagree with a recommendation, but I dislike Hogarth. I know some people have found value in what he does, and others are like me and find his style odd and not very realistic. Of course I suppose it doesn't hurt to throw the name out there as he's easy to find (at least in the US), and you never know, he could be the one that really works for the original poster.

    Noah's recommendations I can get behind though.

    IDK, I really enjoy the way he breaks the figure and body parts down in such a pronounced, geometric way. It's not the way I draw, but some of the studies from the book + proportions (provided you can read his victorian parlance...) etc weren't so bad. He's not the end-all-be-all or even a step by step in my opinion. Dynamic Anatomy merely helped me to properly visualize some aspects of the human figure.

    I'd like to recommend Bammes, too. A lot of the drawings and diagrams just speak for themselves!

    Good surface anatomy and anatomical behaviour landmark book. It goes well with the other technical books as you need deeper understanding to make the most of it.

    Finally I bought this book:

    Anatomy for the Artist
    - Sarah Simblet & John Davis
    Description: N/A
    Topics: anatomy

    Because I saw it at list that you expose me in your posts and because I found it while I was buying some comics, hehe (chance).

    Thanks you for your useful help.

    This Sarah Simblet book is awesome. Some really nice photography and overlays of drawings over photos too.
