Supercharge your drawing with the power of photo reference!

An essential foundational tool for any aspiring artist!

To draw a character consistently and convincingly over an entire story or series, you need a serious reference library--all professionals use them. Inside, find more than 500 awesome-quality color photos depicting popular poses, props, outfits and activities for extraordinary and everyday comic characters--people pointing at heroes flying in the sky, lifting large objects, cowering in fear from impending doom and even doing battle in hand-to-hand combat. Lit with a superior two-source technique, these photos expose dramatic, muscle-revealing shadows and figure contours to add depth, realism and weight to every illustration.

Use reference photos to:

  • Trick viewers into seeing 3-D places, people and things by leveraging art techniques like foreshortening, shading and perspective.
  • Breathe realism and action into drawings by referencing muscular models ranging in age, gender and ethnicity, brandishing guns, swords and knives while wearing everything from capes and street clothes to spandex shorts.
  • Explore the nuances of common facial expressions like pain, anger, fear, frustration, joy, shock, confusion and smug satisfaction.
  • Create dynamic poses including standing, sitting, flying, lifting, punching, kicking, smoking, screaming, drinking, laughing, sword-fighting, ducking...and more!
