Medical Illustration Podcast - Figure Drawing February

For this episode of the Medical Illustration Podcast I’m going to give a virtual tour of my personal library of art books for figure drawing. Learning to draw the human figure well is a challenging task, but one every medical illustrator must be familiar with. So here’s a collection of my favorite references for figure drawing. Let me know if I missed any good ones!! If you'd like to check out the figure drawing studies I've been doing recently, check out my Instagram account where I posted a figure drawing every day for the month of February 2023.
