    You can try 3d.sk. There are different payment plans that allow you access to the larger high-rez images. If you want a CD of photo reference, there is always "The Figure on CD."

    yeah I joined 3d.sk for reference to do 3d modeling. Although the poses are too static for drawing in my opinion.

    That figure on CD look like it is very promising though!!! Thanks for the links!


    Keep em coming if you have more info peoples!

    Hmmm, I don't usually look for nude ref online for the sole reason of avoiding porn sites (yay spyware! Yay out-of proportion, contorted poses that have NOTHING to do with my composition!)

    I will toss out the name of an awesome book though, which has some advanced poses and excellent muscle tone to all the models. I mentioned this in another thread but I''ll say it again, since the book is prettymuch a coffee table book that only cost me $5.

    "Passion & Line", filled with nude and well-lit images of male and female ballet dancers. This book was my bible in my figure sculpture class and there are some incredible poses in there.

    Again, wish I could give you online help, but... google image searches make me cry.

    willow-whisp, you got that book for $5? The cheapest I've seen it at amazon.com is $236, and there's one on auction at eBay for $349.95! When and where did you buy your copy?

    Are you serious?!

    I bought my copy two years ago during a clearance sale at an Adult Book Store in RI. They had half a dozen just sitting there, dirt-cheap. I'm almost certain they don't have any more since they've entirely changed their stock in the last year but you can contact them if you like.

    Here's the web address (not for the under 18 crew!): Miko Exoctic Wear

    They're a very tasteful store and stock(ed) a lot of wonderful nude art books. Hopefully they can help you find a cheaper copy...

    I buy bodybuilding mags from time to time. The one I buy has both m/f fitness/muscle.

    Try looking for old pinup photos (from the 60's or whatever) if you're tired of muscle mountains.

    yeah you are right, that book is $349 on ebay!!! Time for me to run down to the used book store.....

    or just buy 20 or 30 of them on amazon only to auction them off for $100 more on ebay.

    people are nuts.....

    although from the looks of it, this book is awsome. What a shame people are idiots and will $350 for a book of pictures.

    Thanks for the link, and you're right, they no longer stock it. They probably don't sell books like that anymore because people prefer to buy harder material. That's probably why they had all those in a clearance sale. lol, I'll bet that if you knew then what you know now, you would have bought the whole lot! Looks like you got a piece of gold there -- hang on to it.

    Im not sure where you could find some, but there is a "gay/lesbian concept art" thread floating around, the poster there might know where you can find some tasteful nudes of men. maybe worth a shot.

    You're not kidding! My friend was going to pick one up too at the time, but didn't. UGH! I have no idea why this book would be so expensive; it's obviously out of print but so aren't thousands of other art books.

    Keep your eyes peeled guys, there's bound to be someone out there who will sell this book and don't know what they have. And seriously, check adult book stores... I wouldn't be too shocked to find another copy in one.

    Oh, here's a copy up for auction for just over $100... far from cheap, but if some of you really want it, here ya go.

    Passion & Line Auction

    The one for $349 on ebay has some nice scans from the inside, might wanna look at those while you still can.
