Thumbs up Do you know good up to date anatomy for artists resources?

I really want to paint the figure beautifully so I’m going to bit the bullet and learn human anatomy for artists. Does anyone know any good resources for this?
I know there are some very old dry books where you copy the drawings, bridgeman etc. Does anyone know of any good online resources or more up to date resources to learn what I need?

Thank you!

Re: Do you know good up to date anatomy for artists resources?

Normally you have to study anatomy in 3 hr classes.
The model either takes up a pose for a week or month.
It is the sustained pose that gives you the practice you are asking about,

Check and see if one of the Gammell based Ateliers are near you.

And the starchy old book you are looking for is the -

Artistic Anatomy ---- Hale / Richer

With a doses of the Bargue Drawings.

The drawing technique would be called ------- Sight Size.
Good Luck

* I studied at the Studio Cecil-Graves back in the early 80's
Now called, Studio Cecil and The Florence Academy - Florence
Heat -Bodied Oil is the vehicle of all Hand Mulled Paint . A very little Stand Oil is needed as medium or to oil out .
Medium is used only in the last coat/s if needed at all.
In the good company of Old and New Masters.
