I am one of the models who worked on the book, and I can't tell you how excited I am with the final product. First it is awesome to see the photo of me on the cover draw masterfully into an action hero. I have several friends who are artists, and they tell me this fills a need where other photo reference books fall short. The action poses, and expressions are just what comic book artists need, for the cross between realism and fantasy that is the art if the comic. Mr. Scalera not only supplies a wide range of high quality photos, but also demonstrates how to use and combine them for professional quality comic book artwork. A great tool for pros and aspiring artists alike!
