I shared these over in Fantasy & SciFi and I thought the Digital Forums could use them, too.

The Structure of Man: Drawing The Human Figure From Your Mind - Anatomy Training Course (http://the-structure-of-man.blogspot.com/)

Structure of Man Videos on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Drawing+the+Human+Figure+From+Your+Mind&search=Search)

Posemaniacs - Rotateable anatomic figures (Warning: These digital figures have no epidermis, so, they are great for seeing muscles structure.) (http://www.posemaniacs.com/blog/)

Anatomica: Basis of Facial Expression Learning Tool (http://www.artnatomia.net/)

Very cool links there Digi, thx for sharing. Im a big fan of learnign anatomy myself, so here are the references I found most helpful:

The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expressions
Human Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of Form by Elliot Goldfinger
Master Class in Figure Drawing by Hale, Robert Beverly
The Anatomy Coloring Book (great place to start, use water color brush/equvalant or youll go mad coloring)

Glenn Vilppu is IMO the BEST person to learn anatomy from. Maybe a bit biased here but anyone who takes his class will ususally agree, I was lucky to take one a few of his classes and as soon as he gets back from his Italy Drawing trip, Illl be taking more. He stresses a less technical aproach and teaches you tools to use the figure as well as explanes and diagrams out the anatomy very well. His classes are exactly what you would see on the dvd's (they are recordings of classes) The goal being to understand the figure in a way where you dont need a model and can draw from imagination in a very gestural way(not so technical as in the structure of man). There are drawing dvds, anatomy DVDs, plus more. I have them all and still take classes and will continue to go o his classes.

I like Vilppu's technique, too. It must be really cool to study with him. Here's a link to the 23 lessons that he did for Animation Magazine: Figure Drawing Resource - Glenn Vilppu (http://blogschmlog.blogspot.com/2007/03/figure-drawing-resource-5-glenn-vilppu.html)
