Book & CD-ROM. Artists looking to supplement a live model class or hone their skills from the comfort of home are provided with a solid pictorial guide to the human form in this detailed reference. Nearly 200 crisp photographs portray a diverse group of male and female models from a variety of angles in 52 classically inspired poses. Precise lighting reveals otherwise hidden areas of the models and illustrates rich shadowing and tone, while an anatomical study, inspired by da Vincis Vitruvian Man, presents detailed proportional references for each model. The accompanying CD-ROM contains nearly 1,500 high-resolution, full-colour images, allowing artists to zoom in on challenging areas such as the hands, feet, and face, or project the photos to life-size proportions. Nine poses with overhead views are also exclusively available on the CD-ROM.
"An artist wishing to paint the human body in its entirety would be well served by [this] book." --Jeriah Hildwine, painter, MFA, Hoffberger School of Painting, Maryland Institute College of Art
