Form follows function. Function is FORCE. Capture the FORCE in your characters with this comprehensive guide to anatomy for animation. While most resources out there take the memorization approach, FORCE: Anatomy for Animatorsillustrates the function of human anatomy, rather than just addressing muscles, joints, and their locations. Written with infectious enthusiasm and packed with thoroughly demonstrated examples, FORCE: Anatomy will show you how to use straight and curved lines to show the direction and role of FORCE in the human body. Each part of the body is broken down into FORCE, form, shape, and anatomy, allowing you to see the design process from different angles. Special consideration is given to anatomy for animation, allowing you to create a character that is anatomically accurate in both stillness and motion. Detailed visual instruction includes colourful, step-by-step diagrams that allow you to easily follow the construction of an anatomically correct figure. Learn how anatomy is drawn and defined by the function of a pose. Visit the companion website for drawing demonstrations and further resources on anatomy.

Through creating purposeful art with a prompt, you are pushed to create within certain boundaries (A particular character, a storyline, a concept, a timeframe), you can learn to think about these limitations in different ways that will force you to come up with alternative solutions, different techniques, experimental designs, new drawing styles, or just thinking in a different way to rapidly push your art to the next level.
