Product Description

Synopsis

Artists can easily access the human form outside of the studio with this solid pictorial reference. More than 500 crisp photographs portray a diverse set of models in 100 poses - ranging from the classical to the everyday - and show the positions from a variety of angles, including overhead. Exquisitely detailed photos of particular body parts and precise lighting reveal otherwise hidden areas of the models while providing rich shadowing and tone. The inspiring photographs in this collection are ideal for both students and more advanced artists who are looking for material to supplement a live model class or to hone their skills from the comfort of home.

5.0 out of 5 stars great resource 17 Nov 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I'd pretty much exhausted the virtual pose books (also well worth buying) not really expecting it to be as good. In fact, in some ways it's actually better. The poses, like the VP ones, are viewable from all round (not quite 360 degrees in this book, it's more a progression of photos around the model. The image jumps between pictures rather than smoothly turns round. On the other hand, they are taken from higher and lower angles so you get different views to draw from.)and they are also higher definition than the VP ones. There's a reasonable selection of body types for the female models, though they tend towards the slim and people annoyed at the blurring of the female images in VP will be pleased to note it doesn't occur on these pictures. If I have any crititcism it would be that they could have had a few more non-caucasion models and possibly more useful poses, but if you want to practice your life drawing and there aren't any classes around, then this book or the Virtual Pose series are a good alternative.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version - odd to say the least. 28 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the Kindle version of this - I am a professional artist and have a number of other similar books, and was interested to see how well it worked on the Kindle. On the positive side, the picture quality is reasonable - though the screen size probably makes it difficult to use for anything other than sketching. What was odd though, was that there is a lack of consistancy with the poses - some have only a few angles while others have both more angles and different elevations. The other odd aspect was the fact that in a significant number of the poses, the models were dressed. Life drawing is about gaining knowledge about the human form and the muscles, balance, etc. Clothed figure reference is also useful, but it is not what this book is advertising itself as.

Sadly, my impression of the whole was that it was incomplete while also having material inserted from some other book. In fact it was so odd, that I am tempted to get hold of a paper copy to see if it is the same.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as Useful as hoped 2 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In all honesty, i haven't found this book as useful as I'd hoped. Some of the poses are too contrived to be of any good to me ( check out Threading the Needle...wtf )and some of them are inaccurate depictions of people using various weapons, like who holds a sword like that, I wonder ? Also I would have welcomed more in the way of different male models, the three here are all slim, youngish, no muscle definition to speak of, which for me was disappointing as that's what I like to paint the most - muscles ! A couple of the poses were repeated with different models, which I thought was unnecessary tbh. I suspect that to get the most out of the book, you need the disc that goes with it.
But it's a good learning tool, just no good for inclusion in finished art I'm afraid.
