View Full Version : Bio-mechanics book?

11 November 2006, 07:38 PM
This may be wishful thinking on my part but has anyone heard of, or come across a book on bio-mechanics that's geared towards artists? There are quite a few for medical students, but foolishly they've gone for text instead of pretty pictures.

george bridgeman has a few books out that are really good reference points to go from as far as studying dynamics of joints / muscles. hogarth also has great insight into illustrating movement versus poses.

the bridgeman books are really cheap and are just plates / photography (no text), but I was actually surprised at how much more I learned when I had to pick apart his process myself rather than reading his explanation...
