9781440309229: Comic & Fantasy Artist's Photo Reference: Colossal Collection of Action Poses

Created specifically for comic book and fantasy artists, the Colossal Collection of Action Poses features page after page of energetic, high quality, artfully composed reference photos. This isn?t your average visual aid full of boring, lifeless models in the same staid poses. In this book, you get WHAM! (Karate chop to the head!) WHOOSH! (Leaping out of danger!) ARGH! (I?ve been shot!). Running, flying, kicking, wielding weapons, it?s all here, along with a great selection of casual activities (talking on the phone, getting dressed, drinking) for carrying your storyline forward.

  • 1,200 dynamic facial expressions and poses, with an emphasis on action
  • Extreme angles, perspective and special lighting poses for maximizing drama
  • Male and female models represent a range of ages and ethnicities
  • 16 step-by-step demonstrations show how professional comic artists from DC, Marvel and other top publishers use photo references to create cutting-edge art
The "Colossal Collection of Action Poses" is a book that features a best-of style group of anatomy poses from Scalera's first three photo books, which include: Comic Artist's Photo Reference: People & Poses (2006), Comic Artist's Photo Reference: Women & Girls (2008), and Comic Artist's Photo Reference: Men & Boys (2008). 

The pose file book boasts an all-new cover by fan favorite artist Amanda Conner (Power Girl, Black Cat, Vampirella) and Paul Mounts (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Ultimates). If you are looking for photo reference for artists, this is the original and best resource for figure drawing and cartooning. 

Scalera also includes never-before-seen photographs that were shot for the original books, but were not included due to space. And, the book features brand new art lessons from Michael Avon Oeming (Powers) and Thom Zahler (Love & Capes). Also included are classic educational lessons from Mitchell Breitweiser (Captain America), Sean Chen (Wolverine), Paul Chadwick (Concrete), David Hahn (Spider-Man), Matt Haley (Wonder Woman), Jamal Igle (Superman), Josh Howard (Dead@17), JG Jones (Wanted), Rafael Kayanan (Conan), Mike Lilly (Batman), Greg Land (X-Men), Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), Fernando Ruiz (Archie), William Tucci (Shi), and Mark Smylie (Archaia).
