[color=paleturquoise]For those that do not have the luxury of having live subjects to draw, here's a link to a useful contemporary dance website. It has lots of pictures of dancers in interesting poses. If anyone else knows of other resources to tap from pls post it!



i have far better ones for that,since ive been a dancer for 10 years befor starting
animation,and unfortunately my only presence at any drawing class was as the model
(so sad).
you can try here:

http://www.ballerinagallery.com/

lots of referance.
and u can try photographers...i recomand howard schatz,he photographs lots of nudes
with great lighting,so u can see every little detail.every book he doese,he picks a
subject and go into very elaborate details with it.
i have 3 books of his,huge images,very useful.
no large images on internet thogh
his web site:

http://www.howardschatz.com/

and u can see some on kodak:
http://www.kodak.com/global/en/professional/features/legendsV3Q2/large/2_2.shtml
http://wwwjp.kodak.com/global/en/professional/features/legendsV3Q2/large/2_5.shtml
http://www.kodak.com/global/en/professional/features/legendsV3Q2/large/4_2.shtml

however,using dancers as referance is not always useful because there are some
anatomy abnormalities on some ppl,like bones that get gradually broken in order to take
a different shape and all sorts of creepy stuff.

i have some more referance i usually use for modeling and drawing if i need(i usually only
animate):

imageafter:bodyparts (http://www.imageafter.com/category.php?category=nature_characters_humanparts)
henry gray:anatomy (http://www.bartelby.com/107/)

Hey, thanks. :) But it seems that's not what I was looking for (this (http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/expression/muscles.jsp) is a very good resource for them btw.)

Sometimes I forget how a good friend Google is. I think that (platysma) (http://thailabonline.com/muscle/face.htm) which responsible of this (http://www.rst-art.com/ana-n07.htm) was he talking about.

I founded 8 images very interesting... They come from this book, "Drawing in the high art school". This book was writing in the URSS in 1957. The drawings are students works (students??!!!). I wish this book!!! i suppose its very difficult to get one of this....

Awesome!!! Thank you for providing us with this link! Hope to see your work on the forum. :)


I'm glad, Rebecca, that you like drawings scanned by myself from the book. I hope they'll be useful for you and readers of this forum.

Unfortunately modellers, creating models of people (especialy women ;) ) not oftenuse books on anatomy. It is pleasure that on this forum there are topics like this, where people can find and share links on body's anatomy.

It would be sad, if the term "anatomical" became disdainful in 3D graphics. About it wrote Burne Hogath in his outstanding book "Dynamic Anatomy (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN%3D0823015513/3drendercomA/002-2687249-3522404)".

p.s. I'll try to scan more drawings from this and other books ;)

09-10-2005, 03:49 PM
Royal Ghost,

Thanks. :) I think it's funny that with so much reference out there in the world, modelers don't use it ~ is that really true? I find that kind of hard to believe...but, I've seen many models that could definitely benefit from a bit of reference. :)

As they say...computers don't do everything...yet. ;)

Cheers, :)

which contains some great tutorials as well as artist features and Hong's own work. Most importantly, it contains photo sets ~ great pictures of nude models whom Hong has photographed himself. Additionally, he has hi~res figurative reference photos which may be used as textures for 3D modeling. You will also find links back to the Anatomy Forum there.

Please stop by to check it out! :)

Hello all,

This is the first time I've really looked into this forum category, so pardon the newbishness.
I wonder, are self-portraits allowed here? I don't know if the word "anatomical" can include the human face (solely) or refers more to the whole body. I'm planning to post some portrait sketches and hopefully get some feedback. (This part of the board seems the most active in collaborations)

hi guys. nykolai, a great painter at deviant art, just shared some reference photo packs of her hands in different poses.

she says it's for anyone who needs it, but she might've meant just on deviant art. i sent her a pm asking for permission if we can post studies of it (i'll update when she replies) but for the time being, please don't post anything till she gives me a green light. just make studies of it on your own. oh and big images so big files ok.

*edit*
nykolai said it would be ok to post images, but she would like us to link back to the original.

she also has a basic and advanced painting tutorial. be sure to check out her awesome work too and send her a word of thanks ok. :)

Does anybody know of any websites or books that focus on anatomy for different body types, like ectomorph (as thats the one im mostly looking for) rather than the average figure.

I'll have another ponder through these pages again tomorrow to see if i can find anything, but it would be cool if anyone knows straight off.

I think your best bet is body building books ~ here are results from Amazon.com, using the search term 'ectomorph':

Amazon.com search results for Ectomorph (http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=br_ss_hs/102-0177294-1220179?platform=gurupa&url=index%3Dblended&keywords=ectomorph&Go.x=0&Go.y=0&Go=Go)

And just for the interested:

From http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/becker3.htm
The three body types are further described below.

ECTOMORPH

fragile
thin
flat chest
delicate build
young appearance
tall
lightly muscled
stoop-shouldered
large brain
Has trouble gaining weight.
muscle growth takes longer.

MESOMORPH

athletic
hard, muscular body
overly mature appearance
rectangular shaped (hourglass shaped for women)
thick skin
upright posture
gains or loses weight easily
grows muscle quickly.

ENDOMORPH

soft body
flabby
underdeveloped muscles
round shaped
over-developed digestive system
trouble losing weight
generally gains muscle easily.

Thank you to monica-taddei for this incredible link!

It has an incredible database:

The SurgiCat Search Page (http://surgicat.rcseng.ac.uk/search.aspx)

It allows you to search the museum database, I tested it and ran a search for 'skeleton', and retrieved this:

The database is orgainsed by keywords, so you can search for hands, feet, "face profile", "old man", etc. Resolution is kinda low, but it's very useful anyway.

Interactive real-time 3D skeleton plus muscles, organs, etc. Click on any muscle/bone/etc. to see the name, hide it or make it transparent. See relationships between muscles, the bones under them, the skin over them. Wow.

http://www.visiblebody.com/images/tourmoviethumb2.jpg (http://www.visiblebody.com/)

You have to register an email address, it only runs in Windows using Internet Explorer, Flash, and the Anark player, and it's only online. Ouch x4.

But... it's free, and totally worth the effort. Amazing stuff.
