Created specifically for comic book and fantasy artists, the Colossal Collection of Action Poses features page after page of energetic, high quality, artfully composed reference photos. This isn't your average visual aid full of boring, lifeless models in the same staid poses.

In this book, you get WHAM! (Karate chop to the head!) WHOOSH! (Leaping out of danger!) ARGH! (I've been shot!). Running, flying, kicking, wielding weapons, it's all here, along with a great selection of casual activities (talking on the phone, getting dressed, drinking) for carrying your storyline forward. 1,200 dynamic facial expressions and poses, with an emphasis on action Extreme angles, perspective and special lighting poses for maximizing drama Male and female models represent a range of ages and ethnicities 16 step-by-step demonstrations show how professional comic artists from DC, Marvel and other top publishers use photo references to create cutting-edge art This collection brings together all three previously published Comic Artist's Photo Reference books, along with brand new actions and demonstrations. It's powerful inspiration for drawing smokin' scenes and creating authentic characters that leap off the page.
