Looks good.

http://fineart.sk/ has a lot of anatomy resources, as well as Andrew Loomis textbooks, as I keep repeating here.

Anyone else knows about a good resource? (Except Poser or other 3D models, of course. Photographs or manuals, please.)

Renderotica is primarily known for relatively cheesy looking 3D porn and soft core bits. However, their store has a selection of 'Reference Pose' disks that are decently priced.

Renderotica Reference Poses (http://www.renderotica.com/xcart/home.php?cat=296)

About ten bucks, for various models/sessions each with a variety of poses and angles.

Virtual Pose (http://www.virtualpose.net/) is similar, but more upscale in it's artistic intent and also in price. Some of their earlier products are for sale at a decent rate though.

They've converted photos from several angles into a single 'virtual reality' style Quicktime, which means you can 'turn' the model around until you get your preferred angle to sketch from.

Wasn't a few images from Virtual Pose included on a recent ImagineFX or Corel Painter Magazine cover disc?

A advice to fineart.sk. If you are in a book site you can see that the scanned book pages comes from a url like:

If you iterate the JPG number in address bar (or a script :o)) you can easier download whole books.
