Hey everyone! So Ive got some awesome news for you all! I've been asked to be part of whats headed to be the biggest anatomy art book EVER, Masters of Anatomy, which kickstarts today. The art book features 100 very talented artists, including:
and many many more.
Check out the video in the link to see what its all about and please support this project! This is the anatomy art book youve been waiting for - www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…
It looks like a simple picture book showing various artists versions of drawing anatomies. Is there any tutorials or help to drawing people? What does it offer that I can't already get online and in digital for free? The KS video was very basic.
Yup, it's pretty basic but I think it'll be a great reference book for anyone wanting to nail the basics before moving forward with other studies. I'm sure someone could manage without it but yeah, it just makes the first step with anatomy a lot more convenient, especially with it being in 100 different styles, compared to just 1.
It could be more convenient, but I'm not sure how much more helpful it would be then to just download free pictures from the internet from artists that you do care about to use as anatomy references.
Since I'm not an artist I may be missing the point of this book. I figure it would be more helpful with some tutorials and showing some sort of 360 of a male & female bodies instead of 2 front and 1 side views of each. I guess the back view isn't important. :/ Also, showing someone 100+ styles of how to draw human antimony without any tutorials for a $65 book (without no PDF version) isn't really a great book imo. Not all artists draw the same and which anatomy styles is this book to focus on?
This book seems like it is going in the right direction to help artists, but it seems to be significantly lacking things to make it a great book, especially when you can get references and tutorials for free.
Well it's not meant to be a complete guide to anatomy but more of a solid first step to study in figuring out basic anatomy. Each of the 100 artists will be creating the poses in their own signature styles. The artwork will also be exclusive to the book with only certain artists permitted to make public online one angle.
It being loaded with different styles makes for great studies since there are certain anatomy fundamentals that are always consistent no matter what. Studying all the different interpretations will only help build a greater understanding of these fundamental basics even if you're style is totally different to what's in the book.
But hey, if you can already find all you personally need online for what you're after then ya, this book probably isn't one that's totally necessary for you.
