Draw characters that leap off the page!

1000+ poses!

Whether a scene calls for your heroines to be sexy, scared or savage, Comic Artist's Photo Reference: Women and Girls will help them strike the right pose. With more than 1000 reference photos to choose from, you'll find the inspiration you need in to give your female characters attitude, believability and life.

Four models in a range of ages.

A wide variety of action, dramatic and casual poses, as well as facial expressions—from applying makeup and getting dressed to flying, shooting, punching and more!

Four step-by-step demonstrations show how top artists use photo references in the creation of cutting-edge comic book art.

Working from these photos is a great way for beginners to improve their art. For more advanced artists, this book is a handy reference for mastering every nuance of gesture and form. It's the next best thing to having real, live superheroines in your studio! (In some ways even better, because you can count on these models to be there when you need them!)
