    Looking for Animal anatomy charts!

    Hey!

    I've been browsing the net for animal anatomy charts, but all i find is low-res pics, not good for
    printing at all.
    So i wonder if any of you guys know about good resources online where I can find some good hi-res Animal anatomy charts like Muscle charts and skeletal charts!

    All tips are appriciated!

    A good resorce for animal anatomy is a book from Dover publishing called "An Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists." Other than finding veterinary textbooks which may not be suitable as artist's reference, this book is the best I have found.

    "Cyclopedia Anatomicae" not only covers human anatomy, but also quite a few animals, such as lions, sheep, horses, and dogs. It's a very good laid out book, that not only shows themuscles, but how they attach to bones.

    Otherwise, books are your best option. I havn't run across anything free thats worth it.
    The one listed above is great.

    FYI, I just got this book for $10 from Barnes and Noble. Hardcover. So worth it!!! (and for that pointer, I say "Thanks Dan!")

    I took a class in animal drawing when I was in school and it BLEW MY MIND when I learned that we all have the same basic skeletal structure as a horse/dog/bear/etc. even lizards and birds are just distorted versions, it's crazy!

    No, it's descent through modification from a common ancestor .

    assuming you mean evolution, if I just wrote that nobody would know what I was talking about. I didn't realize before how slight the modification was, you know?

    I remember seeing something on the shiflet brother's forum about the bbc site having both pics & animations as well.
    I've been trying to find it but had no luck so far.

    I've just added an anatomy section to the links page of the wiki, including a small page of animal anatomy links:

    http://www.conceptart.org/wiki/doku....animal_anatomy

    You might be especially interested in Chaveau (1890), a detailed comparative anatomy, and Sisson (1921), a detailed veterinary anatomy of the domestic animals. Both are substantial books (900-1000 pages) with some good skeletal and muscle diagrams in decent scans.
