A good book for teaching human anatomy for art?
I love to draw but I need some help drawing figures. Anyone know any good books to help me learn the human anatomy and learn how to draw people? Preferably just one or two books that don’t cost an arm and a leg 🙂 Please and thank you. Also any tips/pointers/videos that helped you draw people? Thanks again

One of these?
This book got heavy professional praise:
And it works in the direction you seem to need. But… one review said:
"All the Loomis books I feel are purely mechanical in nature with the exception of Fun With a Pencil. If you really need to refine your mechanics AFTER you’ve acquired the natural element to drawing this text is very valuable. Examples of beginner texts include the Vilppu Drawing Manual, Nicolaides’ Natural Way to Draw, and Edwards’ Drawing on The Right Side of the Brain. In order to do drawing you need core elements like a scaling element, feeling/ building form element, etc. which all the above mentioned texts are best in giving. "
