Draw, Paint, or even Sculpt the Figure with this huge collection of high-quality reference photos. Look inside at the visual table of contents for a full thumbnail listing of all the included poses. Whether working on a finished piece, trying a new technique, or getting in some practice time, artists can work when and where they want using the Art Models series. Art Models 8 features 174 all-new figure studies by 55 different models chosen specifically for professional artists. The models represent a wide range of physiques and diversity, both male and female. The poses include individuals and couples in natural, relaxed postures--from standing and sitting, to lying down. The included PC- and Mac-compatible DVD-ROM features high-resolution photos in JPG format. This massive reference gives you well over 4,000 individual photos, each of which could be turned into a work of art. The JPG image format allows the photos to be viewed and manipulated in any way an artist might find useful, such as combining images or rotating them. Images can be viewed on a computer screen, printed out, projected for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level of detail. The poses sell individually for over $1000, making this book and Disk an unbeatable bargain and must-have for any artist interested in the figure.
