My mom is an artist (as a hobby, though. She owns a clothing store as her job.) and she is REALLY BIG on the whole art and anatomy book thing, so if you go into my brother room you'll find this HUGE bookshelf just filled to the brim with every art book under the sun!

I read all of my dad's old medical textbooks and anatomy studies. :D Although some are a little disturbing. I really and truly did NOT enjoy seeing a picture of a cadaver's shriveled genitals while searching for a leg reference at 2 AM.

My mom still has all her medical school textbooks and I enjoy looking through them, though most is just pharmacy stuff. D:

My mom's... She went back to school to become a nurse when I was in middle school. Helped her study. And got to watch her dissect stuff. Ever held a brain? It's pretty cool.

No, But I've saved a small collection of anatomical photo's before I got booted off of the internet a few days ago. It's more than likely I'll start to add more to it eventually.

Actually I own several... mostly directed toward artiest. I borrowed my sisters medical anatomy book before I got my own- and I even have one that... kinda borders on pornography.... (not that I've ever read a porn book) *cough* but they are all very useful for practicing the human figure. I quite enjoy drawing with them- especially during the summer when I actually have time to draw...

I have like 2-3 anatomy books but they are written like text books and honestly I can't seem to pay attention enough to read them. I'm more of a visual person and like to see step by step with shapes.

I own a book about the human body but it's not really about anatomy. But it's a big help for me cause it's a good reference though it doesn't show me how to draw the human body. I've been studying human anatomy through observing and the internet...

I've been looking for a anatomy the size of a regular book for years. The only anatomy book that I've seen is a big one, like a double or triple size than a regular book.

try an anatomy book designed for massage therapists, they're usually alot thinner then the medical ones and they concentrate on muscles not everything else

needed one for my figure drawing class a few semesters ago. Definitely worth it. Anyone who says they don't need one has to seriously take a look at their ego. You need a basic understanding of real anatomy before you can claim distortions as your "style". Otherwise you will plateau and not improve for years.

Kudos to anyone who sees the value in actually owning some form of anatomy guide!
