    PLEASE NOTE: ITEM WILL GO ON BACK ORDER IF PURCHASED. EXPECTED DELIVERY IS JULY.

    Any professional creature artist will tell you the importance of incorporating anatomical accuracy and therefore believability into your designs. Our half-écorché/half-skin animal anatomy figures offer detailed insight into the muscular structure and surface variation of animals commonly used as a basis for creature designs, capturing three distinct mammalian body types that are familiar to everyone but often misunderstood. They are a resource you can study in three dimensions, in person, which is incredibly valuable when photographs just aren’t cutting it and you aren’t able to study these animals in real life.

  • 3dtotal Anatomy: Equine figure

    1 Review(s)
    PLEASE NOTE: THIS ITEM WILL GO ON TO BACK ORDER IF PURCHASED. ESTIMATED SHIPPING IS JULY.

    The horse is known to be a particularly difficult mammal to replicate, its forms often misunderstood even by experienced artists. Regularly used as a basis for fantasy beings such as dragons, unicorns, and kelpies, a solid understanding of a horse’s anatomy goes a long way in creature design. The half-écorché/half-skin equine figure offers you the chance to study both the muscular structure and the surface variations of a horse in detail, acting as a perfect resource when photographs aren’t enough and you aren’t able to study the animal in real life. If you want to produce believable and authentic creature designs then anatomical reference such as this is a must.
