A gold mine of gorgeous imagery and reference for figurative artists

“Bodies in Motion is a gold mine of gorgeous imagery and reference for figurative artists and anatomy geeks. For visual effects professionals working with characters and creatures it is invaluable – high resolution, multi-angle images and scans of movements that expose the infinitely complex ways that bodies work, with slick interface to boot. The quality of the content is jaw-dropping!”
