The Gnomon Workshop releases a superb DVD on Animal Anatomy by Marshall Vandruff. Marshall is an acclaimed art instructor who has combined a love of drawing with a pursuit for the ultimate teaching strategies for anatomy, perspective and composition.  Introduction to Animal Anatomy is a lecture that was months in development and presents an intelligent approach to Animal Anatomy based on form analysis. This lesson will provide artists new to animal anatomy with an accessible and exciting foundation on which to build, and will also be a refreshing guide for experienced artists looking for inspiration and new approaches to learning anatomy.  





This comprehensive introduction to animal anatomy is for artists who want to draw authentic-looking animals from their imagination. Marshall demonstrates that the core of this skill is in knowing animal bones and muscles, constructing them as three-dimensional forms, and practicing these disciplines until they become easy enough to let your impulses take over. He uses hundreds of drawings to show the major components of various animals, how their anatomy works, and how to draw them so that they look anatomically authentic, solid and alive. 3D artists looking to enhance their understanding of basic animal form and motion will also benefit from Marshall’s presentation.        INSTRUCTOR BIO:    Marshall Vandruff has worked as a writer, illustrator, voice-over artist and consultant for nearly thirty years.
