Helpful Link Part 3
Some helpful videos that have short but information heavy commentary. I’ve only checked out the anatomy videos, and though they weren’t made to teach anatomy from the ground up and aren’t recommended for beginners, they point out some helpful facts.
What’s most helpful probably is that the artist builds up the musculature right in front of your eyes and digs out the anatomy.
Again, I don’t rec. some of these for beginners, but this can be helpful for people studying anatomy out of books and diagrams who want a demonstration.

I’m a little bit hesitant about posting this because when I made this tumblr I didn’t want to post the usual repost of a million reposts, but I’ve been using these links for so long and they’ve been so helpful. I hope you guys don’t mind me posting these.
(last warning these are really old, already well-known links I’m sorry followers /weep)
For improving gesture and figure drawings!
-shuffles through many stock images of humans and animals with a handy timer. Also has a nifty class-training mode.
-same concept, some overlap of images and some different from the link above.
-Kinda helpful but most artists don’t recommend this for detailed studying. Quoting the Resources for D/ic/ks site, “Keep in mind though that this uses 3d models and does not realistically show the movement of muscles.” Some of the options available on the site are fun to experiment with, though!
-lotsa lotsa resources for human anatomy
