Anatomy for Sculptors - Review

General / 23 August 2022

Learning anatomy never ends and that's what makes the journey so interesting. Whether I work on creatures or stylized characters vs realistic characters, I always find anatomy a crucial aspect that makes the characters believable. There are tonnes of resources available to help in one's journey to learn Anatomy and I wanted to share a book that does this excellent

A4S is the only Book that’s on my desk every single day. I really enjoy how visual the book is and not necessarily cluttered with text. This is exactly what the artists prefer in my opinion and doesn’t make learning anatomy a scientific journey at the very beginning 

The topological renders plus the simplified planes of the anatomy make learning more effective and help understand complex structures more easily. Additionally, their scan data and 3d models on the website - help us to visualize the aspects even better. Overall I would highly recommend artists interested in learning anatomy get their hands on their books as it makes learning anatomy a breeze irrespective of whether the artist is a beginner or a professional.
