Anatomy: A Complete Guide for Artists Joseph Sheppard

Buy it for $10, honestly worth it.

Ah! I actually have this book! It’s nice and really really cheap.. I think I actually got mine used for about $5? Only thing I’d say is that DEFINITELY do not use this as your sole anatomy book and make sure you pick up bridgeman or hampton.. the latter helped me see muscle grouping much better and the former helped me a lot when I began to stylize muscles. 

But, ya! Maybe peruse through a pdf and see if you like it? I mostly just use pdf’s but I find it handy to have at least one or two non-digital anatomy books to reference every now and again

Figure tutorial by Erik Gist who teaches at Watts Atelier- Source here.

I can’t praise this school enough, it imbued in me great discipline, good foundations, and a more focused outlook on improving myself. The teachers are kick ass people.

Hopefully this is handy for a few folks.

It is a miracle I have people who want to talk to me on a daily basis.

Always love me some hands : D

I always feel good when my professor tells me I draw really expressive hands = u =

I found these images in a folder on my hard drive. I remember I scanned them for someone once from a book. I figured I’d post them on here in case anyone is interested in some cat anatomy tips.
