Dias,

Probably your best bet is www.3d.sk - tons of reference there, sortable by characteristics / body part etc.

There's a monthly membership fee, but at this point it's the best reference site there is.

Cheers,

Hi Rebeccak, thanks for your reply.

I was subscribed to that site times ago and downloaded some gb of reference, but that not what I was looking for (sorry I haven't been very clear before). I'm looking for some 2d reference that illustrate various type of noses (something like this (http://www.folkbildning.net/~pricklund/upload/Anatomy%20-nose.jpg)). I know, people often use photo references for they works, but I'm trying to learn organic modelling without using any pictures, that's way I'm looking for noses, eyes, ears ecc. :)

To be honest I don't know of a specific book, but it sounds like what you are looking for could be found most easily by checking out the Art / How To section at a bookstore - or from amazon.com, something like what you might find here (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/104-2447561-0975162?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=drawing+noses%2C+eyes%2C+ears&Go.x=0&Go.y=0&Go=Go). Probably most how to draw portrait type books have something like what you are looking for.

A book you might be interested in is:

Check out this thread:

Reference for Anatomical and Figurative Art (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=257570)

Some great websites are:

http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/anatomy/anatomy.jsp
http://www.artnatomia.net/

Hope this gives you a start. :)

The best way to learn the features is by drawing them - so I would encourage you to start a Sketchbook if you wish in the Personal Anatomy & Sketchbook Threads (http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=200) area of the forum, following the standard naming convention. It's a good way to keep track of your progress and to stay accountable. :)

Cheers,

Thank you very much for the links Rebeccak, they are very useful. :thumbsup:

I think that I'll buy a few of that books, it will be better to study this things from the ground. :)

Anyway, thanks again.
