    Red face Books for skeleton reference?

    Does anybody know of some good books with photographs (or detailed drawings) of human and/or animal bones and muscles? Something along the lines of "Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists" by Frances A. Davis, which I already have, that wont cost me an arm and leg to get?

    Or how about some websites for photos of articulated skeletons? I've just about searched google images dry...

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Buy a model of the skeleton, that's the best way to learn. Richard Hatton's "Figure Drawing" is really good, it doesn't have detailed pictures of the skeleton, but is indispensable for figure drawing. The only book I know of that seems to really go in depth on drawing the skeleton is Gottried Bammes's "Die Gestalt Des Menschen", it's in German but if you can find it it looks like it's worth getting. I bum studies of it second hand from taxman's sketchbook.
