Around-the-clock "live" modelsArtists in search of figures in intense action—flying through the air, punching, kicking, and crouching—will find more than 100 poses of male and female models in 28 categories of dynamic movement in the latest addition to the Art Models series. Informed by diverse sources such as baroque art, with its moody lighting and twisting figures, and comic books, with heroic figures in strong stances and suspicious crouches, this visual reference will inspire any artist—comic book artists, animators, video game designers, and illustrators—interested in depicting drama. A section of time-stopping photos of actions including jumping, falling, or swinging a sword offers artists a series of expertly photographed views that would be very challenging to achieve with a studio model. Art Models 7 also presents a number of the series’ trademark stationary poses photographed in 24-point rotation and shot in the round. For artists who work in fine detail, close-ups and dramatic perspectives have been added for numerous positions and can be found on the companion disc in resolutions up to 20 megapixels.
