How does an artist get better at drawing? Very simple, by drawing. That practice,the act of being inspired and finding new approaches is what moves an artist to the next level.
The purpose of this book is to provide you with images to inspire you. A book dedicated to help guide every artist, to learn about, construction, form, balance anatomy, proportion, folds in clothing, gesture, silhouettes, portraiture, lighting, hands, perspective, and contrast.
With the images in the Posebook, you can sketch for the fun of it. Learn how to draw humans from the side view, back view, understand how the head tilts, how a body sits, understand the angles of a foot. You can study and draw the back of an ear, the underside of a nostril, the bottom of a shoe. Whatever you feel you need to practice, this is your chance. Flip to any page and start sketching what inspires you.
I find that when I am struggling, or uninspired, what works for me is to find photos that look like fun to draw. So I set in motion the tools to create the pose book that I always wanted. With great dedication and passion, I bring to you a book to draw from, learn from, and have fun with. Don't feel that you need to copy the pose exactly, or use it to find just the right pose for a comic you are doing. Remember this book’s purpose is to provide you with inspiration. You can take it everywhere you go.

A friend turned me on to these books. For all levels of artists trying to draw the male form. Don't get your hopes up for all shapes of males though. That's the only thing the pose books lack, is a wider selection of male or female (depending on which book you get) figures. Still worth the money however. I have both books and when I started using them I could tell an improvement in my figure illustrations and sketches.
Poses, Expressions and Hands : An all around fantastic reference
The fact that this app has full turnarounds for each pose, each facial expression and male and female hands makes it an enormously useful resource.
On top of this, you get 6 instructional videos with topics like rhythm, balance, perspective, drapery… I give it full 5 stars. Great work Stephen!
One small request...
Invaluable apps! I bought the male set on a whim as a fan of Mr. Silver's and liked it enough that I went back and bought the female set as well. I do, however, have one small request: Please incorporate a feature that disables the screen lock during timed poses. It's very frustrating to build up a good drawing rhythm only to have to stop and unlock the screen before continuing.
