    If I had to pick just one, I'd go for "Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet. But there's lots of great guide books out there, I'm interested in what other people have to say.

    Andrew Loomis is a classic, all his books are worth checking out. They even started republishing so if you can buy it, I would.

    I'm a personal fan of George Bridgeman, Loomis's teacher's style. It's more classical, and doesn't focus as much on the face as rather the whole body- but what he does teach is great if you enjoy making characters in motion.
    Fudge this AWESOME place!!!

    My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!

    I'm not even going to google search this book. I trust your opinion, and I can just tell this is the perfect book or anyone interested in anatomical studies. I'm going to put this in my shoping cart, and just blindly make the purchase. I know this is just what I'm looking for.

    If you had to compare this book to Grey's Anatomy how would it fare?
