    I want Bridgman's head on a plate

    I just got my copy of bridgman's anatomy and... man. 5 minutes with that thing and my world is blown right open.

    But, it occurs to me - how awesome would it be to have a physical model of bridgman planar skull? Something small that fits in your hand to angle to get your lighting and placements right for those funny head positions.

    I severely doubt that one exists but, please, CA, prove me wrong.

    (EDIT: arg, this is what I get for having CA open on like, 9 tabs... wrong forum. Move please, if deemed necessary. Could be relevant? )

    Spending money I don't have is far, far easier

    What if I make it wrong

    (a great suggestion, however)

    Modeling anatomy is one of the best ways to learn it, maybe the best. You are forced to learn every inch of the body. Of course you'll get it wrong the first time, but that's why we practice. And if you don't want to use clay there's also ZBrush.

    I think the Asaro head is what you are looking for. It really helped me on my initial training. They are really expensive though.

    Seconding the recommendation to try some sculpting. Few things have improved my drawing skills more than sculpting.
