Need A Side View Of A Male Muscular Anatomy

Help! I Need An Accurate Well Proportioned Side View Of The Male Musclar Anatomy. It Has To Be Strong And All I Can Get Are Front And Back Views. Help Me!
  04 April 2006


A few resources to try: ~ your best bet for Orthographic photos (front, back, side, etc.)
cost is $13.95 / month, in which time you can download as much reference as you possibly are able. It's a great site, which I highly recommend.

The best part about the site is that you can search according to all sorts of criteria ~ male, female, young, old, etc. ~ and find exactly what you need. In nearly all of the photosets, there is Orthagonal reference.

Free sources:
Great nude model, Ben Miller / go to Photosets
Photos of both men and women. Not much Orthographic stuff, though

Lots of other Reference can be found here:

Reference for Anatomical and Figurative Art

Good luck!

Thanks for the mention, Rebecca!

Hi, here are some plates, but not a full side view of all the muscles, the book is pretty expensive though:

You might have some luck going through the pdfs listed at this link:

but I can't be sure, it's been a while since I looked through them.

Depending on the scope and timeframe of your project, maybe it would be worthwhile considering a purchase of the model set over at:

so you can render out and study your own reference model

Also, the book by Paul Richer has some very good plates for muscles and it's cheap:
