laminated fold out anatomy chart

www.barcharts.com/default.asp?page=chart_details&gid=2&pid=491-6

totally random..I saw this laminated anatomy chart in a grocery store of all places for 5.95..it's actually really good reference especially because it's compact and you can keep it pinned up nearby. it's also probably very easy to find for many people and affordable.

hugh_jass,

Thanks for the link!

Everyone,

>>The books at the beginning of this thread are now all linked.

(to Amazon.com ~ though these books I'm sure can be found elsewhere. Check around for cheapest price).<<


Cheers,

~Rebeccak

You shouldn't just list books like this, I've got a couple of these books and to be honest, they are not even worthy of mentioning here.

A rating system should be in place (recommended / other books)

CgMonkey,

Which books do you not like? I understand your opinion. Hmm, it would be hard to have a rating system, as different books work for different people. But I would be really interested in knowing which books you do not like.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I just got these three:



Drawing the Human Head (Burne Hogarth)
Drawing Lessons From Great Masters (Robert Beverly Hale)
Modeling the Figure in Clay (Bruno Lucchesi)

My next one will be Artistic Anatomy - Paul Richer
Did I make a good choice?

bono3d,

Great choices! I don't have the "Modeling the Figure in Clay" but I'm sure it's good.

Check out the work of those who did copies from Richer's book in the CGWorkshop:

(Workshop participants' thread are noted).

Cheers,
