Anatomy from all angles
Body of work Do you regularly struggle with anatomy studies? An innovative book aims to help you capture the human form
An artist from Arizona aims to reinvent the anatomy book. And he needs your help to do it.
Concept artist Bryce Frits has launched a Kickstarter project to fund Super Anatomy, which he describes as “the ultimate anatomy reference book for artists.”
“Other books out there show poses from just one or two angles,” Bryce says, “which is a take-it-or-leave-it approach. We want to make a book where artists can find the poses and the angles they need reference for.”
The book depicts male and female models in 100 positions, from 24 different viewpoints. That’s over 2,400 poses, giving artists a reference for almost every conceivable anatomical position.
For that reason, Bryce says the book will prove an essential companion for creatives of any standing, no matter which media they work in.
“Whether you’re a professional, intermediate or beginner artist,” Bryce says, “if you work with human anatomy then you’ll find Super Anatomy to be an invaluable resource.”

There will also be a DVD included with the book, featuring all the poses contained within.
The use of 3D figures, rather than photographs of life models, ensures complete consistency.
