Art Supplies

I am an avid collector of art supplies and a very active Bibliophile. I tend to shop online for most of my supplies through Blick Art Supplies, or Amazon. When I can get out to a brick and mortar store, I go to Michaels almost exclusively, as they are a lot closer and the store I got to has a nice wide range of things.

Note: Many of the below-listed items contain affiliate links. However, I would only suggest such a purchase if I believed in them.

Books

The first two in the Force Series of dynamic anatomy books were my most recent set of anatomy reference purchases. The Character Design book is on my wishlist! I took an online workshop that required the first book as a purchase. I have never been more happy with a reference. It goes into depth about the dynamic motion of a figure and delves into details of the whys and hows behind it. This is more than a simple "S-curve" tip. The Animal Drawing one was my next buy and has improved my overall animal anatomy! So worth the cost. Even better, most of them come in Kindle editions!

Dynamic Anatomy: Revised and Expanded Edition - by Burne Hogarth is one of my earliest artistic anatomy purchases. It helped me to develop my drawing skills by leaps and bounds in my early college days.
