Anatomy books

Tue Dec 4, 2012, 2:10 PM


I'm frequently asked how I  learned to draw and  the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3


___________________________
Books that are awesome:

"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet

"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried

___________________________
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis


"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis

___________________________
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon

"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon


___________________________
Books that are pure unrefined shit and should be burned on sight:
Anything from Christopher Hart

I had to google Christopher Hart before I realized that maybe the anime face wasn't supposed to be abstract :stare:
