Amazon.com Review

Anatomy for the Artist is like having your own life-drawing studio in the privacy of your home. Carefully constructed photographs of the human form allow you to see the structure and function of the skeleton and main muscle groups. Six imaginative drawing lessons, each supported with photography, show how to portray the bones, head, rib cage, pelvis, hands, and feet in perspective, from different angles, both in still poses and in movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seller keeps promises
By Gonewitchin333 on April 24, 2021
I’m a college student with a Fine Arts major and needed this book for school desperately but everyone wanted almost $200 for this book. I was luck and found this one for a great price with minor wear and tear. I wish the shipping was a little bit faster but don’t we all. Great book great price and from an amazing seller. Will definitely be ordering again

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for an artist's library!
By Kei on June 20, 2017
Must have for all artists' libraries. it's a wonderful reference with a mixture of photos and illustrations. My favorite part is the bone overlays on photos they are so cool and helpful to learn and study on from. It focus more on human structure and bones, wish there was more overlays on the muscles only for a couple of them though but still great. If you've never taken a studio figure drawing class or drawn a from nude models/photos, or just not taken a sex ed class you might giggle at the torso, pelvic/genitals section, something that is kinda never addressed in many artist anatomy books (could explain some of deviant art's lack of understanding at least)

Over all I love it and recommend it highly, sometimes I love just picking it up and doing studies just from it
