Colossal Collection of Action Poses

Comic & Fantasy Artist's Photo Reference

By Buddy Scalera

Format: Paperback

SKU# Y0635

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 is not your average visual aid showing nudes sitting in chairs and frozen in 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 poses (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 ultimate 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 comic book art

This collection brings together all three previously published Comic Artist's Photo Reference books, along with brand new poses and demos. It's powerful inspiration for drawing smokin' scenes and creating authentic characters that leap off the page!

Indispensable Resource Review by Vanessa Wieland, editor

With great new material, including demos from Michael Oeming and Thom Zahler, and models Ridada and Zoe, this massive book is packed with poses and tutorials. Comic and fantasy artists (and anyone inclined to wield a pencil, really) will find this book indispensable for creating consistent characters in a variety of poses. It was my pleasure to work with Buddy Scalera. He really knows comics! If you buy one art reference this year, this one should be it.
