Art Manikins and Anatomical Models
A knowledge of how human body parts act and interact is key to accurately painting or drawing the human figure. When a live model isn’t available, wood and plaster artist manikins and anatomical models can be a valuable figure drawing reference tool for artists learning how to draw or paint faces, hands, and other body parts. Many of these models have multiple articulation points that display the full range of human movement. Blick offers a variety of wood manikins, from miniatures to life-size models, as well as skeletons and skulls for understanding the body’s structure below the skin, plus portraiture and figure drawing books that teach techniques for drawing faces, heads, hands, and other elements of the human form.
