Sharing an old anatomy book PDF, might be useful.

I don't know about you guys, but my anatomy knowledge/drawing is barely passable. I found this Andrew Loomis book on human anatomy which is out of print now, but here it's available to download in .pdf.

Right click
figure drawing for all it's worth and save file as to download the whole thing. I think it's worth a look...

Quotation found within the first minute of flicking through: '
Five feet eight inches (in heels) is considered an ideal height for a girl.'

Oh man, I love old books. When taken out of context, there's at least 3 things wrong with that sentence. Political correctness, who needs it~?
If you take a look tell me what you think of it. I can't wait to do life drawing!!
