Hey, @Marty Bane! There’s a bulky book with gorgeous photos called “Anatomy for the artist”, by Sarah Simblet. It’s quite expensive, but, among the books I can remember, I guess it’s the one that best matches the constraints you listed. Alternatively, one thing I imagine you could do is to purchase one or more model photo sets here at Proko, then choose a bunch of images to print out and make a booklet for yourself. I’m suggesting this because Proko’s model references are among the best I’ve ever seen for drawing/painting, and I assume that doing this might turn out cheaper than buying a hard cover book. Plus, you’d get to choose the specific photos you’d print for your booklet, so it could be something super tailored to your needs. But, of course, feel free to do however you find best! Hope this helps!
Hi everyone, I have been on and off drawing for some time now and want to get back to drawing after a long time. My main problem is finding good reference photo's of human poses. You see, I want it to be offline, no app, no website, but a book. I'm from The Netherlands and most books I can find here are on Kindle. I know real life references are the best, but I'm too rusty at drawing (muscle fatigues) to pay for a real life sitting with a model (if I can find one in the area). Do you have any suggestions for reference photo books for human poses? Thanks!
