Created specifically for comic book and fantasy artists, the
Colossal Collection of Action Poses features page after page of
energetic, high quality, artfully composed reference photos. This isn?t
your average visual aid full of boring, lifeless models in the same
staid poses. In this book, you get WHAM! (Karate chop to the
head!) WHOOSH! (Leaping out of danger!) ARGH! (I?ve been
shot!). Running, flying, kicking, wielding weapons, it?s all here, along
with a great selection of casual activities (talking on the phone,
getting dressed, drinking) for carrying your storyline
forward.
  • 1,200 dynamic facial expressions and poses, with an
    emphasis on action
  • Extreme angles, perspective and special
    lighting poses for maximizing drama
  • Male and female models
    represent a range of ages and ethnicities
  • 16 step-by-step
    demonstrations show how professional comic artists from DC, Marvel and
    other top publishers use photo references to create cutting-edge
    art
The "Colossal Collection of Action Poses" is a
book that features a best-of style group of anatomy poses from Scalera's
first three photo books, which include: Comic Artist's Photo Reference:
People & Poses (2006), Comic Artist's Photo Reference: Women &
Girls (2008), and Comic Artist's Photo Reference: Men & Boys
(2008). 
The pose file book boasts an all-new cover by fan
favorite artist Amanda Conner (Power Girl, Black Cat, Vampirella) and
Paul Mounts (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Ultimates). If you are looking
for photo reference for artists, this is the original and best resource
for figure drawing and cartooning. 
Scalera also includes
never-before-seen photographs that were shot for the original books, but
were not included due to space. And, the book features brand new art
lessons from Michael Avon Oeming (Powers) and Thom Zahler (Love &
Capes). Also included are classic educational lessons from Mitchell
Breitweiser (Captain America), Sean Chen (Wolverine), Paul Chadwick
(Concrete), David Hahn (Spider-Man), Matt Haley (Wonder Woman), Jamal
Igle (Superman), Josh Howard (Dead@17), JG Jones (Wanted), Rafael
Kayanan (Conan), Mike Lilly (Batman), Greg Land (X-Men), Terry Moore
(Strangers in Paradise), Fernando Ruiz (Archie), William Tucci (Shi),
and Mark Smylie (Archaia).

The Colossal Collection of Action Poses is just the latest in a series of reference volumes that are great resources for anyone trying to create their own action-based comic book.

In this volumes and each of both Comic Artists Photo Reference: People and Poses and Comic Artists Photo Reference: Women and Girls, Scalera has taken over 1000 photographs of both male and female models standing in a variety of action poses -- holding various weapons, making kicks, swinging a cape, dressing, crouching, walking, applying make-up, etc. Additionally, there are sections for both sexes, with the models holding a variety of facial expressions -- anger, fright, sadness, happyness, pain, confusion, etc. For artists wanting a base to build an action sequence on, these images could prove invaluable. The photographer uses a number of different models with a variety of body types, thus providing a wide variety of source material for the artist. The only drawback I found in the The Colossal Collection of Action Poses was that the models were all young and fit -- no older folks or overweight body types. Otherwise, an excellent resource for artistic types. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the other volumes in Scalera's series.] Originally reviewed for my local library's website: http://www.lincolnlibraries.org/depts... ...more
