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/prof...large/2_2.shtml
http://wwwjp.kodak.com/global/en/pr...large/2_5.shtml
http://www.kodak.com/global/en/prof...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
henry gray:anatomy
jan saudek: photographer
i have some more but cant remember now.

Question

Mimic muscles on the face and the neck are adhered to the skin and usually not shown on anatomical drawings, my 2nd year med. student little brother says. Does anybody know any resource about them? (Preferably not disgusting ones)

Hey, thanks. But it seems that's not what I was looking for (this is a very good resource for them btw.)

Sometimes I forget how a good friend Google is. I think that (platysma) which responsible of this was he talking about.
