  • Packed with poses from unusual angles and perspectives, close-ups of facial expressions, and difficult details such as hands and accessories
  • Features tips on creating dramatic lighting effects, interesting compositions, and realistic expressions with a step-by-step demonstration of a finished painting based on models from the book
  • The bonus CD-ROM allows illustrators to work directly from all photographs without need to scan them

  • Synopsis:

    Both professional and student illustrators of action and fantasy art can take the guesswork out of rendering extreme anatomy and dynamic action poses with help from this valuable reference source. It presents more than 600 detailed color photos of live models, and represents a wide range of physiques, postures, and poses that can be incorporated in fantasy scenarios. The book's accompanying CD-ROM contains all of the book's posed images, allowing illustrators to swipe them directly and paste them into their own computer art projects. The book also instructs on rendering realistic effects to the illustrated textures of flesh, hair, clothing, and metal objects, as well as advice on adding highlights, backlights, and shadows. Here is a valuable reference source that belongs in every illustrator's personal library. All images are copyright free.
