Super Anatomy will be the ultimate Anatomy reference book for artists!
Using both male and female live models we will photograph 100+ poses!
Each pose will be photographed and shown from 24 separate angles.There will be 8 angles around the model and 3 separate heights.
- Above looking downwards at an angle
- Eye level looking straight on
- Below looking upwards at an angle
This way you will not only have the poses you need reference for but the particular angles you need as well.

We are designing the book with not only usefulness in mind but also speed and ease of use. There will be a table of contents in the front of the book that will have thumbnails of all 100+ poses. This way you can quickly find the pose you need reference for and jump right to the page where it appears without having to flip through the whole book looking for it. Once you are on the page of the pose all 24 angles will be shown and numbered 1-24.
A DVD will also come with the book that will contain high resolution versions of all 2,400 plus images.
On the DVD each pose will have its own numbered folder that matches the numbered pose in the book. Inside each folder you will find all 24 poses numbered 1 through 24 correlating to the angle number in the book. For example, say you are flipping through the book and you want a larger view of pose 28 angle 7, you only need to open pose folder 28 and look for photo number 7. Super quick and super easy!
We are also making Super Anatomy available in a digital version so you can take it with you on your portable devices.
- The Digital Version is being offered by itself as a stand alone tier for $20
- It is available for just $10 with a pledge for a book
Custom programming will be put into the digital version that will link the thumbnail images in the table of contents directly to the page where that pose appears. This will make it faster and easier to find the images you need reference for.

Whether you draw, paint, or sculpt the human anatomy, Super Anatomy with its 2,400 plus reference shots will be an amazing resource for you. And not only will Super Anatomy be great for artists working in many industries but also for artists at different experience levels as well. If you are just learning your craft then Super Anatomy would be a perfect tool to practice at mastering working with human anatomy. If you are already a professional in your industry this book will prove to be an invaluable resource that you will be glad you have on your bookshelf when you need help nailing a tough angle or pose.
To choose the poses we wanted to include in Super Anatomy we used over 20,000 pages of comic books as well as 30,000 individual pieces of artwork as inspiration. We then narrowed down and selected what we believed would be THE 100 most useful and dynamic poses that would benefit artists everywhere.
Here is a breakdown of how the $50,000 we are seeking to fund with this Kickstarter will be used.
- 5% Kickstarter Fee
- 3%-5% Amazon Payment Processing Fee
- 38% Shipping and Packaging
- 25% Printing Cost
- 25% Camera Hardware, Custom Rig, Models
- 2-4% unforeseen expenses
Risks and challenges
A possible delay in the timetable we have set up would be the biggest challenge or potential setback we could foresee. Between the construction of the rig, acquisitions of cameras and equipment , model scheduling, book layout, editing, printing and shipping times, there is a lot of different factors that could cause delays. However, we have set a time frame which included a buffer to hit our target date of October 2014. So it might be possible if everything goes perfect that rather than a delay the book could ship a bit early. If there were any potential changes one way or the other, backers would be notified of new expected delivery dates.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
