Books about how to draw anatomy guides

on: September 11, 2006, 06:27:37 pm
Can anyone recommend me a "good book" for a beginner like me regarding guides on how to draw human anatomy/heads. There are so many out there but, I don't know which one would be best to suit my needs and that I can stick for a long time. It would be nice if it's easy to follow on :)

Thanks in advance :D

Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing for What It's Worth" comes to mind (http://www.austinsketchgroup.com/share/loomis_FIGURE_draw.pdf), which I think is well-suited for a beginner.

Burne Hogarth's "Dynamic Anatomy" is probably the best you can get.  VERY good book.

Really enjoyed reading the link on "figure drawing". I recognise a lot of the proportional and perspective grids from other artbooks I've used. Wonder if that breaks copyright regulations. Don't have any links to top this at the moment, but I'll get back to you if I do.
